States Parties undertake to include those offenses as extraditable offenses in every future extradition treaty to be concluded between them. The term nuclear security is used here, rather than physical protection, as the nuclear security series goes beyond protection of nuclear material to protection of all radiological materials.

So called force-on-force exercises are explicitly mentioned for the first time as an example of performance testing for the protection of Category I material. While this is a valuable tool, there are circumstances where the quantities or types of nuclear material are of low proliferation sensitivity so designing systems against defined adversary attributes and characteristics may not be necessary.

The working groups were separated into three topics: While nuclear security’s profile has recently taken centre stage viz. The meeting concluded that the next meeting should be held in Mayand before that, a working group should be established to make recommendations to the Expert Meeting.
