No, this is a requirement for any materials licensees who are licensed to
possess "quantities of concern".  But you are correct in recognizing the
origin of these requirements which were essentially taken over from power
plant regulations.  It was the commission's response to congressional panic
over the prospect of terrorists making dirty bombs.  The regulations must
be effective because we haven't had any dirty bomb attacks, have we?  Of
course there has never been a dirty bomb attack anywhere, ever - before or
since.  (Reminds me of the joke about elephant repellent.)
