The Department of Safeguards (SG) is the organizational hub for the implementation of IAEA safeguards. The IAEA implements nuclear verification activities for some 180 States in accordance with their safeguards agreements. The safeguards activities are undertaken within a dynamic and technically challenging environment including advanced nuclear fuel cycle facilities and complemented by the political diversity of the countries.
The Department of Safeguards consists of six Divisions: three Operations Divisions: A, B and C, for the implementation of verification activities around the world; three Technical Divisions: Division of Concepts and Planning, Division of Information Management, and Division of Technical and Scientific Services; as well as two Offices: the Office of Safeguards Analytical Services and the Office of Information and Communication Services.
The primary focus of each Division of Operations is to perform and document safeguards verification activities and to conduct analysis and evaluations aimed at providing assurances that States comply with their nuclear safeguards commitments. The Divisions implement a broad range of measures, including information analysis and in-field verification, to draw soundly based safeguards conclusions for States.
As part of the management team of the Section and reporting to the Section Head, the Senior Inspector for Implementation Coordination ensures, in collaboration with the Senior Inspector for State Level Coordination and with staff of the Section, that safeguards activities are conducted effectively and efficiently in accordance with the relevant safeguards agreements and additional protocols with States in order to identify potential indications of nuclear material diversion or undeclared nuclear material or activities.
The Senior Inspector for Implementation Coordination is part of the management team, providing Section staff with leadership, guidance and advice based on technical expertise. As such, he/she is: a substantive expert contributor, coordinating, planning and supervising the implementation of safeguards at State declared nuclear facilities, sites and locations; and an adviser to the Section Head and the Division Director on the analysis, evaluation and interpretation of safeguards relevant data for the purpose of planning and implementing safeguards activities and drawing safeguards conclusions.
