General Requirement

Information and material that meets the criteria set forth in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) 73.21, "Protection of Safeguards Information: Performance Requirements," must be protected from unauthorized disclosure. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has determined that the information contained in the advance notification for shipments of irradiated reactor fuel and certain nuclear wastes is designated as Safeguards Information (SGI) due to its security significance. Each person who produces, receives, or acquires SGI shall ensure that it is protected against unauthorized disclosure. To meet this requirement, organizations and persons shall establish, implement, and maintain a system to protect SGI consistent with the requirements set forth in 10 CFR 73.21.
