New manual on terrorism prevention

20 February 2008

Interpol, Europol, the World Customs Organisation and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have produced a reference manual that details how to prevent, detect, and respond to nuclear terrorism.

combating-illicit-trafficking-in-nuclear-and-other-radioactive-material has been written for law enforcement, intelligence, emergency workers and the nuclear industry.

It advises on existing national and international anti-nuclear terror laws, policies and actions; the existing threat posed by illicit use of nuclear materials; information on radiation health risks and nuclear transports; and advice on the detection of potential nuclear terror threats.

It also calls for better coordination and harmonisation of procedures between agencies and government departments which deal with possible nuclear terror threats.
