114 pages. The Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) is an international technical and professional organization that works to promote safe handling of nuclear material and the safe practice of nuclear materials management through publications, as well as organized presentations and meetings. The INMM's headquarters is located in Deerfield, Illinois in the United States, but its members are located around world including Europe, Asia, South America and North America. There are more than 1,100 members and 32 chapters. Les Shephard, vice president of Sandia National Laboratories' Energy, Security, and Defense Technology Center, said in February 2009 of the INMM and the American Nuclear Society: "These are the two leading organizations in the world that address the challenges associated with nuclear energy, nonproliferation and nuclear materials management and that contribute significantly to the science and engineering foundation for nuclear energy worldwide." This special issue includes articles on Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Energy, Euratom Safeguards, Satellite Imagery, Safeguards Technology, Next Generation Safeguards Initiative, Multilateral Mechanisms, and Verification ChallengesInternational Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Safeguards is a system of inspection and verification of the peaceful uses of nuclear materials as part of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), supervised by the International Atomic Energy Agency. To deter the proliferation of nuclear explosive devices, most of the countries of the world have become party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). Article III of the NPT requires the non-nuclear weapon state signatories to accept international safeguards on all nuclear material within the country. To implement this article of the treaty, comprehensive safeguards agreements (based on the INFCIRC/153 model agreement) have been signed and brought into force with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). To address weaknesses identified over time in these safeguards agreements related to detecting of undeclared activities and misuse of nuclear facilities, countries have also signed and brought into force a protocol to their agreement (based on the INFCIRC/540 model additional protocol). Safeguards agreements with the IAEA are also required in bilateral and multilateral nuclear cooperation agreements and in Nuclear Weapon Free Zone treaties. The overall purpose of IAEA safeguards is to provide credible assurance to the international community that States do not divert nuclear material and other specified items from peaceful nuclear uses. The IAEA's authority is based on the authorities granted in the safeguards agreements signed and brought into force by the countries. The technical measures used to implement IAEA safeguards include observation, review of records and reports, nuclear material accounting, destructive and nondestructive measurements, containment and surveillance, and unattended monitoring. Using all safeguards-relevant information known about a State and available verification technologies, the IAEA implements safeguards measures at both the country and facility levels. The IAEA continually evaluates information from its verification activities and each year draws and publishes conclusions on the peaceful use of nuclear materials within each country.
