IAEA NSSC Network Newsletter

Dear <<Title>> <<Last Name>>,
As the Chair of the NSSC Network for 2019-2020, I am pleased to highlight progress that the International Network for Nuclear Security Training and Support Centres (NSSC Network) has made toward achieving major objectives since the previous publication of this Newsletter in March 2019.
We began the Network year on a high note with the NSSC Network Annual Meeting, held 18 – 22 March in Beijing, China. As always, this event gathered Network members to plan technical activities and identifying priorities for the upcoming year. Also, the 2019 Annual Meeting featured a number of unique elements. Participants had the opportunity to benefit from the training facilities, equipment, and expertise at China’s State Nuclear Security Technology Center, in particular during interactive sessions focused on systems and measures to mitigate insider threats. Also of special note at the Annual Meeting were detailed sessions to gain feedback from the Network members on a plan for development of a technical exchange visit programme among NSSCs and on the draft revision of IAEA TECDOC 1734: Establishing a National Nuclear Security Support Centre as it nears publication.
The NSSC Network Task Force on development of information management tools continues to make progress refining the NSSC Network database and training events calendar to more clearly identify detailed areas of needs and expertise among NSSCs.
