IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei has circulated a report on the Agency´s implementation of nuclear safeguards in 2008 to the Agency´s Board of Governors, the 35-member policymaking body.
The Safeguards Implementation Report for 2008 provides a description and analysis of IAEA safeguards operations for the period January to December 2008. The Agency´s Board of Governors will discuss the report when it next convenes in Vienna on 15 June.
Circulation of the report is restricted, and it cannot be released to the public unless the IAEA Board decides otherwise. In the past, the Board has authorized the release of the annual Safeguards Statement and an associated Summary; it is being invited to do so again for the 2008 report.
