The threat related to criminal or intentional unauthorized acts involving nuclear or other radioactive material out of regulatory control has long been a matter of national and international concern and cooperation. A State’s Nuclear Security Detection Architecture (NSDA) is the integrated set of nuclear security systems and measures, based on an appropriate legal and regulatory framework, needed to implement a national strategy for the detection of nuclear and other radioactive material out of regulatory control (MORC).

Detection operations aim to eliminate or mitigate the risks from MORC, and effective planning, implementation and evaluation is key to ensure the success and sustainability of these operations.

This webinar focuses on key elements regarding the planning, implementation and evaluation of detection operations for MORC.

For context and further information about NSDA, participants are encouraged to watch the previous Regional Webinar for ASEAN Countries, which took place on 14 July 2021 and covered the topic “Nuclear Security Detection Architecture: Strategy, Design and Planning”. The recording can be accessed here.


The objective of this webinar is to:
• Provide an overview of the fundamental elements of NSDA
• Raise awareness of the guidance included in the IAEA Nuclear Security Series regarding planning, implementing and evaluating detection operations within a State or at its borders
• Highlight the challenges related to planning, design and implementation of detection operations
• Give an overview of the key elements for detection operation sustainability
