In 2013, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) published a regulatory document REGDOC 2.12.3 to enhance the security of radioactive sealed sources in Canada. This regulatory document is based on the security recommendations of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Code of Conduct on the Safety and Security of Radioactive Sources and related documents in the Nuclear Security series, and follows a risk‐based approach using a performance‐based regulatory framework. This paper provides the reader with a Canadian perspective on the security of radioactive sealed sources, and a reflection on those security measures and practices that have proven to work effectively, as well as those that look promising from a security management and physical protection standpoint.
