Nuclear security glossary

The Nuclear Security Series Glossary is a compilation of the terms and definitions used in guidance publications issued in the Nuclear Security Series. It is used as a working document for drafters and technical officers preparing publications in this Series, and reviewers considering drafts of such publications, to ensure that terminology and usage is consistent with existing publications. It is also available publicly to document and support understanding of the terminology in the Nuclear Security Series.

In the longer term, it will also be used, in consultation with the Nuclear Security Guidance Committee and subject matter experts, as a basis for refining terminology and definitions where necessary to help further improve the clarity, consistency and coherence of the IAEA's nuclear security guidance. Comments regarding possible improvements, especially from users of the Nuclear Security Series publications, are welcome.
