The IAEA has been applying safeguards in Iran since the mid-1970s, shortly after Iran concluded its first Safeguards Agreement with the Agency in May 1974. General information about IAEA safeguards can be found here.
On June 6, 2003, the IAEA released the first in what have become a series of regular reports on Iran’s nuclear program, specifically the status of its safeguards implementation. These reports are rich in detail about Iran’s activities and, taken as a whole, provide the single most authoritative set of documents about Iran’s nuclear activities. The following cursory annotation of the reports should not be read as an exhaustive summary of each report’s contents, but as an abbreviated roadmap to a few key highlights.
