In the present paper the methodology of the analysis of unknown origin is described. From a complex of properties and material characteristics the origin of the material can be determined by means of analytical measurements and by comparing measurement results to characteristic production parameters and material specifications. The definition of the genesis of these materials is of paramount importance in view of a counteraction to the repeated non-authorized withdrawal of nuclear materials from the legalized use in a nuclear fuel cycle.
