All containers entering the U.S. at the 22 ports through which the greatest container volume enters the country by vessel must be screened for radiation. To secure the Nationäó»s borders while facilitating legitimate trade and travel, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) screens incoming shipments for elevated radiation levels, using large-scale radiation detectors called radiation portal monitors. In FY 2011, CBP screened approx. 24.3 million containers coming through all U.S. ports of entry. The Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) tests, acquires, deploys, and provides maintenance in the first year of operation; CBP provides maintenance after the first year. CBP has the lead for commissioning, operating, and maintaining the radiation portal monitors. This report determined whether DNDO and CBP deploy and use radiation portal monitors to ensure the most efficient cargo screening at seaports. It also addressed the congressional mandate to conduct an annual evaluation of the cargo inspection system. Includes recommendations. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
