On September 11, 2002 the terrible tragedies in New York,
Pennsylvania and Washington, DC changed the world forever. Security issues not only impact our daily
lives, but are also in a state flux concerning the shipment of spent nuclear
fuel in the United States. The
formation of the Homeland Security Advisory System and Interim Compensatory
Measures from the NRC, along with other security measures, have affected the
way we transport spent nuclear fuel.
This paper describes the challenging and demanding way
that security is planned, implemented and maintained in support of spent fuel
shipments in the United States.
