[en] The implementation of IAEA safeguards is a subject which attracts the attention of virtually every IAEA Member State. The reasons for this attention are many and varied and although much has been said and written about the subject it is clear that there will be continuing debate. In the hope of establishing a forum for a systematic review of current and anticipated future safeguards implementation problems, in 1975 the Director General called together ten persons from Member States with nuclear programmes at varying stages of development to form the Standing Advisory Group on Safeguards Implementation. The Group was later expanded to twelve and changes were made in its membership from time to time. The Director General called upon the Group to: (1) Evaluate the technical objectives of IAEA safeguards, particularly with a view to ensuring their continued validity in the light of technical developments; (2) assess the effectiveness and efficiency of specific safeguards operating methods in meeting these technical objectives; (3) advise on techniques to be employed in safeguards operations in order to ensure that these techniques conform to the latest international standards; and (4) recommend areas where further work on methods and techniques is needed. This paper reviews the work of the Standing Advisory Group on Safeguards Implementation since its formation in 1975, summarizes the subjects that have been examined and the advice rendered, and outlines the problem areas requiring further study in the interest of maximizing the effectiveness and efficiency of safeguards within the technical, legal and financial constraints which are expected to apply.
