Office of Nuclear Security and Incident Response
The purpose of the Baseline Security Significance Determination Process (BSSDP) is to provide an objective means of evaluating findings related to common defense and security for activities licensed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). This process is also used to provide assurance that licensees’ safeguards systems can effectively protect against the design basis threat (DBT) based on defense-in-depth layers of protection as part of licensees’ commitments to NRC requirements. Staff have conducted periodic assessments of the BSSDP since its inception to ensure this process is risk-informed while also meeting its stated intent.
This digital exhibit will provide the history of the BSSDP since its inception, and a brief introduction to the current assessment of the BSSDP.
