Singapore acceded to the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material on 22 September 2014 and accepted its 2005 Amendment on 22 October 2014. The Convention establishes measures related to the prevention, detection and punishment of offences relating to nuclear material. A Diplomatic Conference in July 2005 was convened to amend the Convention and strengthen its provisions. The amended Convention makes it legally binding for States Parties to protect nuclear facilities and material in peaceful domestic use, storage as well as transport. It also provides for expanded cooperation between and among States regarding rapid measures to locate and recover stolen or smuggled nuclear material, mitigate any radiological consequences of sabotage, and prevent and combat related offences.
