The participants at the Moscow Nuclear Safety and Security Summit in April recognized the importance of effective nuclear material accounting and control and physical protection and fundamental responsibility of nations to ensure the security of all nuclear material in their possession and the necessity for effective national systems for nuclear accounting, control, and physical protection.

This might not be achievable as the Implementing Guidelines may be too prescriptive for use as legally binding guidelines in bilateral safeguards agreements. Whether the adoption of Revision 5 will require substantial changes to national nuclear security frameworks will depend on how national systems are currently structured and operated.

The review from Revision 2 to Revision 3 was limited in scope. In reaching a compromise the structuring of Revision 5 is divided into sections under Essential Element titles, with corresponding Fundamental Principles referenced where applicable.

Revision 5 qualifies this re-categorisation provision by stating that “if the threat assessment or [DBT] includes an adversary who is willing to die to accomplish their mission, States should carefully consider whether or not to reduce the categorization levels of the material on the basis of radiation levels sufficient to incapacitate the adversary before the malicious act is completed” emphasis added.

Humanitarian action Where and how Australia provides emergency assistance. The conference reaffirmed that the Convention provides a sound basis for the physical protection infciec the transport of nuclear material, the recovery and return of any stolen material, and the application of sanctions against any person who may commit criminal acts involving nuclear material.

Several States Parties, including Argentina, Belarus, China, Cuba, Cyprus, France, Guatemala, Indonesia, Israel, Pakistan, Peru, Republic of Korea, Romania, the Russian Federation, South Africa, Spain, and Turkey, declared that they were not bound by the provision of Article 17, paragraph 2, which provides for the submission of disputes to arbitration or their referral to the International Court of Justice in the case of an inability to resolve the dispute on the basis of negotiations between the States Parties.

First, there is the new 2225, related to reducing categories for “self protecting” highly radioactive material, that assessments of threats consider adversaries that may be imfcirc to die to accomplish their mission. Category III for fresh fuel and Category II for spent fuel – as would be the case for majority of civil nuclear facilities – the model described here could be used.

One area of Revision 5 that was crafted, in part, with terrorist threats in mind is a small but fundamentally important qualifier to footnote reev.4 on radiation levels in the table of categorisation of nuclear material same footnote unchanged in Revision 4 and 5. Five States ratified or officially accepted the amendment: Twelve of these Guidelines have been produced, with several others in the drafting stage, and others planned.

Under this model, adherence to security standards could still be assessed in bilateral consultations, but assessments would be at the systems-level, rather than the details of implementation. The conference adopted Ministerial Declaration which called for improvements in global nuclear safety measures.

252 scope was expanded to cover domestic use, storage and transport, as well as sabotage of nuclear facilities.

Three States became parties to the Convention: Revision 5 recognises more flexible fit-for-purpose approaches in security design by allowing for security requirements and systems to be defined on the basis of a DBT or a threat assessment, which is defined as “the evaluation of the threats – based on available intelligence, law enforcement, and open source information – that describes the motivations, intentions, and capabilities of these threats”.

They suggested that the Agency should consider the possibility of convening a meeting of interested States to address the issues involved in such a review. It also provides infcigc enhanced cooperation between states regarding the rapid location and recovery of stolen or smuggled nuclear materials, mitigation of radiological consequences of sabotage, and prevention of combat-related offenses.
