Radiological and Nuclear Threats to CI

16 - 17 November 2016, JRC Ispra

At this plenary meeting for all TG members, the status of the 2016 work programme was reviewed, and the completion of the planned deliverables was scheduled. It was agreed to modify some outputs, following the deferral of the joint ERNCIP/GICNT (Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism) workshop on technical reachback until 2017. The draft agenda for the ERNCIP/GICNT workshop was discussed, and the timetable for its announcement and invitation to participate was agreed. The Group was updated on the current status and future plans for the development of the list-mode data format standard IEC 63047, initiated by this TG. The meeting initiated work on their proposals for the Group’s work in 2017 and 2018 for the ERNCIP Office to incorporate into a formal work package submission for DG HOME.
