Abstract: Egypt's concern is to enhance, maintain and improve the national nuclear security regime, including the legislative and regulatory framework. Egypt believes that a nuclear security legislative and regulatory framework better enables the State to prevent, detect and respond effectively to criminal and other unauthorised acts involving nuclear and other radioactive materials. In this work, the proposed drafting process for nuclear security regulations in Egypt will be presented taking into consideration the International Atomic Energy Authority model regulations and guidance as well as the nuclear security regulations of some selected countries to show the relationship between the evolution of nuclear and radiation activities and their national regulations. This study presents four different nuclear security regulations to be drafted by the Egyptian nuclear and radiological regulatory authority covering security of nuclear and radiation facilities as well as nuclear and other radioactive material during handling, use, storage, import, export and transport.

Keywords: legislation; nuclear security; Egypt; drafting process.
