Alternate Title: NSDM 347: The Classification of Sensitive Nuclear Safeguards Information
In this Directive, President Ford "has reviewed the interagency study conducted pursuant to National Security Study Memorandum 216 and has determined that, owing to the potential consequences of loss or diversion of significant quantities of strategic nuclear material (plutonium, uranium-233, or uranium-235 enriched above 20%), or sabotage of any facility or activity involving such material, unauthorized disclosure by any person of certain information relating to the protection of such material, facilities or activities could reasonably be expected to cause some degree of damage to the national security. Consequently, the following information should be classified, when appropriate, under Executive Order 11652 and implementing directives of that order."
