Abstract

This paper tries to provide an answer to the following question: Is it necessary, for the execution of tests in attribute mode, to establish, a one-to-one relationship between the list of items, by checking all their identification tags (tag inventory) ? The answer to this question is obtained through the identification of the conditions under which a test in attribute mode has to be designed and executed to provide for reliable results in a safeguards environment. In the opinion of the writer a 100 % tag inventory is not necessary, under the conditions that each item on the list provided by the operator to the inspector is described in such detail that: (i) either it corresponds to, and may only correspond to one specific physical item, (ii) or that it may not be replaced by another item with the listed characteristics in the time elapsing between the communication to the operator of the inspector's choice and the presentation of the selected sample to the inspector for the attribute check.
