The course included discussion of regulatory documents on MPC&A of nuclear materials at
Russian Navy facilities. Representatives of the Central Technical Department together with
organizers of the courses conducted two discussion sessions on these documents. This was very
useful for people from the Navy and KI RRC who develop these documents since representatives
of many Naval facilities (and not only office employees) participated in these discussions; the
representatives made a number of useful comments related to real situations at facilities. The
complete list of discussion topics is as follows:
1. Fundamentals of nuclear material accounting and control
* MC&A principles
- Methods of non-destructive analysis of nuclear materials
* Nuclear material accounting
- Physical inventory taking
* Nuclear material access control
* Concise glossary
* Concise description of equipment for non-destructive analysis
2. Physical protection of nuclear materials
- Definition of a possible threat
- Physical protection systems
- Exterior detectors
* Interior detectors
* Entry control systems
* Access delay
* Communication of response forces
The manual that was distributed to all attendees covered each of these topics and included
material beyond that introduced in the lectures. In addition to the instruction manual, the
following documents were distributed and discussed:
" Temporary Guide on Accounting, Control and Physical Protection of Nuclear Materials in
the Russian Navy
" Extracts from the Draft Guide on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Materials, Nuclear
Facilities, and Nuclear Material Storage Locations in the Russian Navy"
" "Compilation of Federal Regulatory Documents Related to Nuclear Activities"
" "Automated System of Accounting and Control of Nuclear Materials, Radioactive Substances
and Radiation Sources ofKIRRC (KIMACS). This system will be installed at Russian Naval
Upon completion of the course, all attendees were subjected to oral examinations on the entire
curriculum. The exams covered only general subjects of MPC&A of nuclear materials and did not
include details. Attendees demonstrated a good knowledge and were ready to continue the
training at the next, more detailed course. All attendees received certificates on the completion of
the training course on nuclear material MPC&A fundamentals at Kurchatov Institute.
