1 February 2023

The 'IAEA International Symposium on Safeguards: Reflecting on the Past and Anticipating the Future' took place between 31st October and 4th November 2022 at the Vienna International Centre, Vienna, Austria.

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 marks 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 will consider the evolution of safeguards to date; address contemporary challenges; anticipate and prepare for a changing landscape; leverage innovations for safeguards applications; engage people; and expand partnerships.
