Current and planned ventures for the supply of uranium enrichment services in the United States and other countries are reviewed and a comparison made of supply and demand through the year 2000. It is recommended that the international community (1) establish multinational enrichment ventures in Australia and Canada; (2) form regional pools for enrichment services; (3) tighten export control procedures for transferring nuclear materials, facilities, or technologies; (4) revise and update the Nuclear Suppliers' Group guidelines to reflect advances in isotope separation techniques and require disclosure of nuclear activities as a condition of supply; (5) promote research and development in safeguarding enrichment facilities; (6) promote attempts to discover the commercial potential of the laser; and (7) adopt measures to reduce uncertainty about the supply of enrichment services by incorporating proposed national commercial enrichment facilities within an international framework.
