In Japan, on the back of growing interest in nuclear terrorism and promoting peaceful use of plutonium steadily, there is a growing interest in protection of confidential information in nuclear industry. This paper looks at how protection of confidential information (Safeguards Information) are regulated and handled in the United States civil nuclear energy industry, and extracts its implication for Japanese regulation and practical business affairs.
