The use of the term ‘Nuclear Forensic Science’ began in the early 1990s with the reporting of finds of nuclear material by law enforcement agencies and subsequent court cases. This presentation will demonstrate how the skills and practices that had been developed by Radiochemists since the discovery of radioactivity at the end of the 19th Century have been developed to be useful to answer questions of national importance if crimes involving radioactivity are discovered. The presentation will conclude by showing how the techniques and procedures can be used to build up the previous history of an intercepted sample.
