Category 3 Source Security and Accountability

Sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards
On October 18, 2016, the Commission issued Staff Requirements Memorandum COMJMB-16-0001, “Proposed Staff Re-Evaluation of Category 3 Source Accountability,” directing NRC staff to take specific actions to evaluate whether it is necessary to revise NRC regulations or processes governing source protection and accountability and to conduct an evaluation of, among other things, the pros and cons of different methods of requiring transferors of Category 3 sources to verify the validity of a transferee’s license prior to transfer, as well as the pros and cons of including Category 3 sources in the National Source Tracking System. This poster will provide a forum in which to ask questions and provide feedback on the NRC’s assessment of these changes, since they could impact the reactor community.
