Presented by

Ms. Jodi Ploquin, Canada, Mr. Chris Englefield, UK and Dr. Roger Howsley, WINS

About this talk

Join us on December 2 at 16:00 CET for our first operational webinar on the Security of Radioactive Sources . We will be hosting presentations and panel discussion on the experiences and lessons learned from developing regulatory requirements and implementing security upgrades for radioactive sources. The webinar will include discussions and feedback on main challenges and solutions when strengthening the security of sources. It will provide both a regulator and an operator perspective, and will cover diverse areas such as identification of stakeholders, roles and responsibilities, need for adequate skills and competencies, and the impact of new security provisions on the use of radioactive sources. Through a survey, participants will be asked to provide their opinion on various topics, including who should be in charge of the security of sources, safety or security – which comes first, or the adequacy of international recommendations. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to the invited speakers.
