Safeguards Symposium

Every four years, the IAEA hosts the Symposium on International Safeguards at its headquarters in Vienna.

The Symposium brings together global stakeholders in support of IAEA safeguards. It is an opportunity for Member State safeguards regulatory authorities, the research and development (R&D) community, industry and civil society to identify challenges and opportunities for IAEA safeguards, showcase research, share ideas, and build partnerships.

The fourteenth Symposium on International Safeguards took place from 31 October to 4 November 2022, a year marking three key safeguards anniversaries: 60 years of IAEA inspections, 50 years of comprehensive safeguards agreements (CSAs), and 25 years of additional protocols (AP). Entitled “Reflecting on the Past and Anticipating the Future”, the Symposium considered the evolution of safeguards to date; addressed contemporary challenges; anticipated and prepared for a changing landscape; leveraged innovations for safeguards applications; engaged youth; and expanded partnerships.

Details of the 2018, 2014 and 2010 Symposiums are also available.
