New Brunswick Laboratory (NBL) is owned and
operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
NBL is the U.S. Government's Certifying Authority
for nuclear reference materials and a Center
of Excellence in the measurement science of
nuclear materials. NBL provides "expert
technical support" in the areas of nuclear
material safeguards and nuclear material measurement.
NBL provides assistance with the development
and implementation of Material Control and Accountability
(MC&A) policies at DOE/HQ, Operations and
Field Offices and DOE/NNSA contractor facilities.
Examples of assistance include training, safeguards
and security survey/inspection support, assistance
with internal reviews, and professional assistance
to resolve unique problems. To obtain assistance,
send requests to the NBL Director through your
DOE Operations or Field Office. NBL also provides
a staff cadre for a DOE Anomaly Response Team
(DART) that, often on short notice, independently
investigates, evaluates, and reports findings
related to events/conditions that could potentially
indicate the loss of control of nuclear materials,
such as inventory or shipper-receiver differences.
