NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL SECURITY
Examples of nuclear security measures for nuclear facilities
The lifetime of a nuclear facility extends from the earliest planning stages through to its decommissioning. It is important to consider nuclear security early in the design of new facilities and during partial redesigns or modifications, as it can result in nuclear security for these facilities that is more efficient, more effective and better integrated with other safety, safeguards, operational and other measures. Nuclear security measures are also important during commissioning and operation, they should not cease at decommissioning, as they are important in addressing the protection of the remaining quantities of nuclear material or other radioactive ma terial, which has accumulated during the operations stage.
