Abstract: The IAEA bases its technical and scientific Programme on voluntary contributions from Member States. All these contributions constitute the IAEA Member States Support Programmes (MSSP). The European Commission Cooperative Support Programme (EC-SP) started in 1981 to support IAEA’s activities in the field of nuclear safeguards. Since its beginning, the EC-SP has been operated by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and its institutes at Ispra-Italy, Geel-Belgium and Karlsruhe-Germany. EC-SP tasks provide technology and expertise in many technical areas related to the effective implementation of safeguards verification measures including the detection of undeclared materials, activities, and facilities. The paper details the main activities of the EC-SP in recent years in terms of the specific work as part of tasks with well-defined milestones and deadlines, training activities as well as the technical consultancy support to the many IAEA meetings and expert groups. The paper will describe how JRC technical activities contribute to the improvement of the implementation of Nuclear Safeguards and, in a wider view, to the implementation of nuclear non-proliferation policies.
