States have the responsibility for combating illicit trafficking and inadvertent movements of radioactive material. A major portion of that effort is devoted to monitoring borders to detect and then confiscate any radioactive material which might be moving across borders in an illegal manner. The IAEA has responded to requests from its Member States to provide a set of technical specifications that can be used in the design testing, qualifying and purchasing of border radiation monitoring equipment. The purpose of this publication is to provide deployment specifications rather than just test specifications. The system parameters discussed here can be used as the specification for how the equipment will actually be deployed for border security applications rather than only for use during comparisons of equipment from various manufacturers.

This book has a restricted distribution and all requests for it should be made through the relevant mission or nuclear regulatory authority
