This document provides detailed guidance for the format and content of a security assessment of a commercial nuclear power plant.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) encourages design certification and combined license applicants to use this guidance to optimize physical security during the design phase. The expected result is a more robust security posture with less reliance on operational programs (human actions) and potentially costly retrofits. The NRC also encourages operating reactor licensees to use this guidance in planning and executing changes and upgrades of physical protection systems at existing sites.
