Nuclear Safeguards

WMD, Nonproliferation, and Security

Nuclear Safeguards

The Nuclear Safeguards program examines the impact of evolving international, regional and bilateral safeguards obligations on states and facility operators. Through stakeholder engagement, the program promotes best practices in safeguards implementation across the nuclear fuel cycle, from the (very) front-end (mining, milling conversion) to the back-end (waste storage and disposal). Projects include looking ahead to nuclear facilities of the future, such as deep geological repositories and multinational fuel cycle facilities and how these emerging facilities, coupled with emerging technologies, challenge and/or enhance the management of safeguards. The Nuclear Safeguards program is part of the Promoting Security & Prosperity Initiative.
