Domestic inspections play an important role in strengthening the national oversight of nuclear and radiological assets and also support implementation of international safeguards. By conducting domestic safeguards inspections, a State Authority can help meet national requirements and enable national stakeholders to prepare for International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections and resolve safeguards issues in advance, thereby saving valuable time and resources.

Summary of 4th Asia-Pacific Safeguards Network Plenary Meeting

The 4th Asia-Pacific Safeguards Network Plenary Meeting was held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on 7-8 November 2013, with working group discussions on 6-7 November. The meetings were hosted by Indonesia’s Nuclear Regulatory Authority, BAPETEN, in the Hotel Melia Purosani, Yogyakarta.

APSN Network Survey: Report of Findings

Considerable human and technological capacity is required on part of State safeguards authorities to be able to effectively implement their safeguards obligations. In effort to prioritize its activities, APSN carried out two surveys to obtain a better understanding of safeguards needs in the region and to establish a baseline of available training capabilities. The Safeguards Needs Survey was designed to identify all training needs of APSN member states including those of immediate priority. The Training Providers Survey was designed to determine available resources and interest to meet those needs. Together, the surveys enable APSN to optimize available training resources and ensure that the highest priority training needs are met.
