Disarmament and Nonproliferation

Additional Information IAEA

IAEA is an independent, intergovernmental organization that serves as a global focal point for nuclear cooperation and assists Member States in planning and using nuclear science and technology for peaceful purposes and facilitates technology transfer in support of the development of Member States.

Because of statutory tasks to verify the nuclear activities of Member States which have concluded safeguards agreements and additional protocols, the IAEA is also a major player in the international nuclear non-proliferation regime. (www.iaea.org
