This paper is a sequel to the paper delivered at the 2005 NATO Advanced Research Workshop, Countering Nuclear and Radiological Terrorism, held in Yerevan, Armenia. That paper addressed implementation of the physical protection provisions of the 8 July 2005 Amendment to the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material, including key elements of national legislative and regulatory regimes and integration of those elements into effective national regimes for the physical protection of nuclear material and nuclear facilities under national jurisdiction. The sequel addresses how national legislative, regulatory and institutional infrastructures based on the Amendment's provisions contribute to achieving sustainability of national nuclear security regimes.
