"The purpose of this paper is to respond in part to the Staff Requirements Memorandum (SRM) SECY-08-0184 'Strategy for the Security and Use of Cesium-137 Chloride (CsCl) Sources,' dated April15, 2009. The SRM directed the staff to continue to work with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) Federal partners to implement the voluntary hardening program for certain blood and research irradiators and to explore other possible Federally-funded voluntary initiatives to augment the safety and security for these essential components of our Nation's infrastructure. This paper provides updated information on staff efforts to support the national implementation of the In-Device Delay (IDD) Security Enhancement program for hardening CsCl irradiators, and provides information about additional federally-funded voluntary security enhancement initiatives for Category 1 and 2 radioactive sources.This paper does not address any new commitments or resource implications."
