EXPERTS COMMIT TO STRENGTHENING IMPLEMENTATION OF IAEA GUIDANCE ON IMPORT AND EXPORT OF RADIOACTIVE SOURCES

The International Atomic Energy Association on 21st June reported that over 150 representatives from 86 countries agreed at a meeting last week that the implementation of the Guidance, a non-legally binding document, was effective and concluded that a revision may not be required.  It provides recommendations and details best practices for the import and export of radioactive sources. It aims to help reduce the risk of these sources falling outside regulatory control – i.e. getting lost or stolen and presenting a danger to people and the environment and details the relationship between an importing and exporting country and outlines what may be required on both a technical and administrative level for the proper international transfer of a radioactive source.
