In the field of nuclear safeguards, the EU supports IAEA State-Level Concept (SLC) as a mechanism for increased efficiency and effective information-based implementation of IAEA safeguards worldwide, when compared to the safeguards approaches targeted on specific facilities only. The EU highlights the potential for developing the SLC further with respect to the specificities of a regional safeguards system, if compared to single-state systems of safeguards.
