ASNO has developed, in consultation with permit holders, a number of template permits and compliance codes tailored to various user-types which are set out in the Table below.
- Set out the fundamental conditions for nuclear material and associated items, in relation to safeguards, accounting for inventory, applying appropriate security, reporting to ASNO and providing access for ASNO or IAEA inspections.
The compliance codes:
- are integral to and have the same regulatory status as permits;
- provide the implementation details to support the conditions in permits; and
- are consistent with internationally accepted standards of nuclear safeguards and security.
Please note that nuclear material quantity limits and authorised uses specified in template permits are indicative only and are subject to variation based on the planned use of nuclear material. Some permits specify special conditions, usually set out in Appendix A.
Permit applications can be found here. Queries regarding the use of permits and compliance codes should be directed to email@example.com.
