Safeguards situation in jordan 1
Safeguards Situation in Jordan(1)

No Nuclear Facilities and Nuclear Materials are available in Jordan till now, (SQP) .

Three Ideas are in front of the Decision Makers related to this situation in Jordan:-

1- Remains in the (SQP) for one year.

2- Modify the SQP .

3- Apply the CSA directly.

I think the first Decision is more suitable now for both Jordan and for the IAEA. (why?).

To prepare, train and qualify enough staff ready to make knowledgeable commitment to the programme.

To prepare safeguards specific legislation, rules, regulations, and procedures in order to recognize the safeguards requirements.

To complete the issuing of the regulations to be applied for nuclear facilities, locations, activities and materials to which safeguards will be applied.

To effectively establish the country’s SSAC, inventory and appropriate equipment prior to the recipient of nuclear materials.

Building of national safeguards capabilities in jordan
Building Of National Safeguards Capabilities In Jordan

  • The establishment of :

    - Jordan Nuclear Regulatory Commission (JNRC ).

    - The Safeguards Section at JNRC for SSAC ,Inspection and Reporting.

    - The Safeguards Office at Jordan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC) to establish and maintain the Inventory of Nuclear Materials within JAEC.

  • Staff from both Commissions participated in a training events in the fields of Safeguards inside Jordan and abroad , they will continue for more advanced training.

  • Deep and detailed training Programmes will be needed in the near future to face the new and the actual situation in Jordan.

  • Jordan signed and accept most of the Conventions ,Agreements and Protocols with respect to Nuclear Non-Proliferation and will sign any others related to this subject.


  • Jordan launches a Nuclear Energy Programme to produce electrical energy and drinking water .

  • Most Conventions and Agreements related to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation WERE signed and ratified.

  • Regulations were proposed. Key technical persons have initial training in Safeguards looking for strengthening and upgrading .

  • Jordan will apply the CSA soon and after the completion of the basic requirements.
