Report of the Seminar on Sustaining Nuclear Security Training and Support Centers: Lessons Learned and the Way Forward
On 9 June 2017, the Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) and the World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS) held a seminar on "Sustaining Nuclear Security Training and Support Centers: Lessons Learned and the Way Forward". The participants in the Seminar examined how we can ensure that NSSCs established since 2007 are effective and sustainable, and how do we benchmark their success.
WINS, the IAEA, Mexico and Canada shared lessons learned and discussed the future of NSSCs. As an outcome of the successful collaboration between WINS, Canada and Mexico to support the Mexican NSSC to develop national and regional in-person training on radioactive source security, WINS has produced an ISO 29990 Implementation Handbook. The handbook provides a detailed explanation of the processes and prerequisites for the establishment of an ISO 29990 certified NSSC (including WINS’ lessons learned). The emphasis is on the achievement of a certified NSSC that is effective and sustainable, and able to provide high quality programmes that support the implementation of international recommendations, national regulations and international best practices.
