Security of Industrial Radiography Sources: A WINS International Best Practice Guide

The use of radioactive sources to inspect materials for hidden flaws is a valuable commercial assessment tool. Thousands of these sources are in use at any time all over the world. We know that the loss and theft of these high activity sources are a fairly common occurrence. If they are used maliciously, they have the potential to significantly harm individuals and the environment. Therefore, their security should be of great concern to users, regulators and law enforcement officials. This WINS International Best Practice Guide explains how your organisation can help to reduce the risk of theft of your industrial radiography sources and enhance their security worldwide.

ICNDT was pleased to work with The World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS) on the development of this guide.
