One of the challenges is that devices containing radioactive sources were designed according to criteria related to safety and radiation protection, not to security. It has been shown that a determined adversary with the necessary hand tools could gain access to the sources contained in certain blood irradiator or radiotherapy devices within minutes and remove them from the premises in a portable shielded container with minimal personal exposure to radiation.

Another important consideration is that very few security incidents involving radioactive sources have taken place. As a result, senior management often lack interest in and commitment to radioactive source security.

This hampers the development of a robust security culture and leads to minimum implementation of regulatory requirements for the security of radioactive sources. Finally, many medical facilities have too often ignored the need for individuals who are accountable for radioactive source security to have specific skills and competences, in order for them to understand their role and responsibilities for radiological security and be able to successfully contribute to the establishment of an effective security programme for their radioactive sources.
WINS is organising a two-day round table to discuss the current status of security arrangements for high activity radioactive sources used in medical applications, identify possible gaps and explore how innovative approaches to security could help reduce remaining vulnerabilities. The round table will also give participants the opportunity to share their perspectives and proposals for innovative initiatives that could help strengthen radioactive sources security.
It will also enable participants to exchange information on on-going initiatives, develp coordinated approaches, identify duplications and gaps, and agree on a way forward.

Introduction In the last 10 years, many States have markedly increased the security of their radioactive sources.
