Nuclear Materials Control and Accountability

CHANGE NOTICE No. 2 (DECEMBER 2012) | Replaced by DOE-HDBK-1194-2011 Change Notice 3

This document describes establishing and maintaining a Material Control and Accountability (MC&A) program, where each MC&A program element is a part of a quality MC&A program. Each site/facility operator needs to establish a sustainable, effective graded safeguards program for the control and accounting of nuclear materials to detect and deter theft and diversion, and to prevent the unauthorized control of a weapon, test device, or materials that can be used to make an improvised nuclear device.
