Countries should put in place national measures to track and control the movement of radioactive sources domestically and internationally, to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.
Countries should establish regulatory measures and practices to track materials throughout their life cycles and follow relevant IAEA guidance on end-of-life management.
Countries should commit to replacing high-activity radioactive sources with alternative technologies where possible. They should work to identify and address challenges to adopting alternative technology and to share information that can help other countries adopt these technologies, if they have the capacity to do so.
