Nuclear materials

The Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material and Nuclear Facilities is aimed at protecting nuclear material and facilities and providing for penalties for breaches in this field, as well as fostering cooperation between the States that are parties to the Convention.

The objective of safeguarding nuclear materials is to establish a system of safeguards enabling the Commission to satisfy itself that source materials and nuclear products are used exclusively for the uses declared by their users.
