Protecting Nuclear Facilities from Criminal Acts - IPPAS

Producer: Louise Potterton, Video Editor: Petr Pavlicek

DATELINE: January 2012, Netherlands, Almelo, Borssele.

Since 1996, the IAEA’s International Physical Protection Advisory Service (IPPAS) has been helping states to identify ways to strengthen the protection of nuclear materials and facilities.

At the request of a state, the IAEA assembles a team of international experts to assess the State’s physical protection system, compare it with international best practices and make recommendations for improvements.

The IPPAS mission can be conducted on a nation-wide or facility-specific basis. More than 50 IPPAS missions to 37 countries have already been carried out in States in all regions of the world.
