Description
 
In 2012, GAO identified security weaknesses at U.S. medical facilities that use high-risk radiological sources, such as cesium-137. This report addresses potential security risks with such sources in the industrial sector. Radioactive material is typically sealed in a metal capsule called a sealed source. In the hands of a terrorist, this radioactive material could be used to construct a dirty bomb. The Nuclear Regulatory Comm. (NRC) is responsible for licensing and regulating the commercial use of radiological sources. The Nat. Nuclear Security Admin. (NNSA) provides voluntary security upgrades to facilities with such sources. This report examines (1) the challenges in reducing security risks posed by industrial radiological sources; and (2) the steps federal agencies are taking to improve security of the sources. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
