The identification and assessment of threats provides an essential basis for the selection, design and implementation of nuclear security measures. For nuclear material and other radioactive material that is under regulatory control, and associated facilities and associated activities, the results of this identification and assessment are expressed as a Design Basis Threat (DBT) or a Representative Threat Statement (RTS) describing the attributes and capabilities of potential adversaries against which nuclear and other radioactive materials, associated facilities and associated activities are to be protected.

Within the framework of a series of webinars highlighting the relevant IAEA Nuclear Security Series (NSS) publications that assist States in the technical implementation of the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material (CPPNM) and its 2005 Amendment, this webinar will focus specifically on  NSS No.10-G (Rev.1) National Nuclear Security Threat Assessment, Design Basis Threat and Representative Threat Statements, published in 2021.


The aim of this webinar is to provide an overview of NSS No.10-G (Rev.1) which covers a step by step methodology for States, competent authorities and operators on how to conduct a national nuclear security threat assessment, inclusive of both physical and computer security aspects, and the development, use and maintenance of design basis threats and representative threat statements.

Furthermore, through guest speaker presentations, this webinar will apprise the audience of the linkages which exist between NSS 10-G (Rev.1) and associated IAEA NSS publications.
