Since its establishment in the 1990s, nuclear forensics has developed from a nascent field focused on developing scientific methods to a mature one with national strategies concerned with implementing nuclear forensics science to meet nuclear security responsibilities. Although significant progress has been made, challenges exist when developing comprehensive national programmes. To help address those challenges, the IAEA organized a technical meeting, which provided a forum for nuclear forensics experts and stakeholders from Member States to highlight the role of nuclear forensics in the context of nuclear security, share good practices, and discuss the transition of nuclear forensics from science to practical implementation. This publication summarizes the outcomes and findings of the technical meeting but also reviews the broader themes with a focus on the consistent implementation of nuclear forensics globally.
