Abstract

This chapter deals with the “nuclear safeguards” verification system and describes procedures and measurement methods that allow the safeguards inspectorates/authorities to verify that nuclear materials or facilities are not used to further undeclared military activities. These procedures and methods provide the strong technical basis upon which the safeguards inspectorates/authorities issue their conclusions and receive the broadest international acceptance regarding the compliance of participating states with their obligations.
