VERTIC publishes two new fact sheets on national implementation measures related to nuclear security

VERTIC's NIM Programme has published two new fact sheets on national implementation measures for the international instruments to control and secure nuclear and other radioactive material. These are Fact sheet 11 on the 2005 International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism (ICSANT) and Fact sheet 12 on the IAEA Code of Conduct on the Safety and Security of Radioactive Sources. These facts sheets are the latest in a series that began in 2006.

The series is intended to raise States' awareness of the importance of national implementing measures for the major CBRN treaties and related legal instruments. The first highlights why national implementation of international agreements is important. The other fact sheets provide basic facts about, and guides to the national implementation measures that may be required, for specific treaties and related legal instruments. Fact sheets 11 and 12 join Fact sheet 4 (National implementation measures for the 1980 Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material (CPPNM)) and Fact sheet 5 (National implementation measures for the 1968 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)) to form a complete set as part of the National Implementation Measures Programme's awareness-raising documentation for the international instruments to control and secure nuclear and other radioactive material. Fact sheets 11 and 12 are being translated into Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish.
