BMWi and IEK-6 celebrate 40 years of support for IAEA safeguards

The “Joint Programme on the Technical Development and Further Improvement of IAEA Safeguards” was established by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany and the IAEA in 1978.

The overall aims the German Member State Support Programme (GER MSSP) are

  • To cooperate with the IAEA in developing safeguards methods and techniques
  • To support the supply with the developed methods and techniques
  • To provide expert advice, consultancy, and training

Until today, the German MSSP has completed more than 165 tasks and issued about 440 progress reports. The activities are carried out in close cooperation between IAEA, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH (IEK-6), EURATOM, research institutions and universities, government agencies, nuclear industry, commercial developers, and other IAEA Member State Support Programmes.

IEK-6 is in charge of the scientific coordination of this programme. At the same time, IEK-6 is also the principal investigator of many of these projects.
