Alternate Title: Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste Sector-Specific Plan 2015: An Annex to the National Infrastructure Protection Plan 2013

"Nuclear power reactors generate 20 percent of U.S. electricity, while more than 20,000 licensees use nuclear materials in diagnosis and and medical therapy--an estimated 20 million medical procedures each year in science and biomedical research--for irradiation of food and medical products, and during construction and oil exploration. Accidents, failures, or disruptions in the Nuclear Sector could have severe human health and safety consequences and cascading effects on critical infrastructure sectors that rely on nuclear power or nuclear medicine and industrial uses. Uniquely hazardous characteristics make Nuclear Sector assets the most highly regulated and heavily guarded of all civilian infrastructure."
