Nuclear substances accountancy and control

Any natural or legal entity that builds or operates a facility for the production, separation, processing, storage or other use of basic substances or special fissile substances must maintain a nuclear substances accountancy and control system.

The system comprises accountancy and operating records and data on quantities, categories, forms and structures of substances in accordance with the requirements of Commission Regulation (Euratom) no. 302/2005 of 8 February 2005 on the application of Euratom safeguards, their actual location and the obligation of supervision, including data on the recipient and sender when nuclear substances are relocated.

The system of measurements on which the records are based shall comply with the most recent international standards or shall be equivalent in quality to those standards. Based on these records, which are kept for a minimum of five years, it can be possible to establish and reason the declarations submitted to the Commission. Accountancy and operational records are available to the Commission inspectors in electronic form if they are kept in such form at the facility.

The conditions with regard to accountancy and nuclear substance control are stipulated in the Commission Regulation (Euratom) no. 302/2005 of 8 February 2005 on the application of Euratom safeguards.
