Good practices in provision of nuclear security training courses at the integrated support center for nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security

Naoi, Yosuke; Noro, Naoko; Kobayashi, Naoki; Robertson, K.

More than six years have passed since the Integrated Support Center for Nuclear Nonproliferation and Nuclear Security (ISCN) was established under the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) in December 2010 and started its activities, in response to the commitment of Japan at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington D.C.. ISCN has been vigorously involved in the capacity building assistance on nuclear nonproliferation (safeguards) and nuclear security, mainly in the Asian region. It has provided 120 training courses with 3,257 participants in total up to January 2017. ISCN has been playing a major role in strengthening nuclear nonproliferation and nuclear security in this region, and this can be considered as one of the great results of the Nuclear Security Summit process. Particularly, ISCN's nuclear security training courses, primarily two-week course on physical protection of nuclear material and nuclear facilities, have been building up its own instructors in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration and Sandia National Laboratories. It has also been providing the courses with emphasis on universalization of the IAEA INFCIRC/225/Rev.5 and nuclear security culture. Furthermore, ISCN has provided the training courses for the experts in Japan making the best use of our knowledge and experience of organizing international training courses. The total number of the Japanese experts participating in ISCN courses reached to more than 1200. In addition to that ISCN conducted a special lecture on nuclear security culture at the thirteen-nuclear power plant (NPP) sites in Japan, and three thousand workers at NPPs joined the lecture. This shows that the ISCN has been recognized as an expert organization of nuclear security training support in Japan. This paper will describe the good practices at ISCN through six years activities mainly the progress in our nuclear security training.
