UKSO guidance on safeguards and nuclear material accountancy in the UK

ONR has produced guidance on safeguards and nuclear material accountancy systems for nuclear sites in the UK.  It is the result of extensive consultation with those involved in nuclear material accountancy in the nuclear industry and reflects a broad consensus on how best to satisfy safeguards and nuclear material accountancy requirements, and includes several examples of good practice.

The UK guidance is designed to complement the Commission Recommendation (2009/120/Euratom) on the implementation of a nuclear material accountancy and control system by operators of nuclear installations.  Both documents should be considered together.

National Occupational Standards and Training Standards

UK safeguards specialists from industry, ONR and Government have also worked with Cogent, the sector skills council [link], to produce a set of occupational and training standards related to nuclear material accountancy and safeguards (NMAS).
