A. Introduction

1. This report of the Director General is on the implementation of the NPT Safeguards Agreement in the Islamic Republic of Iran (Iran). It describes the Agency’s efforts and interactions with Iran to clarify information relating to the correctness and completeness of Iran’s declarations under its Safeguards Agreement, in particular, in relation to three undeclared locations in Iran where the Agency found uranium particles of anthropogenic origin. The report refers to other safeguards implementation issues in Iran: a change in the configuration at the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant (FFEP) that was inconsistent with the design information declared by Iran at that time; the detection by the Agency of uranium particles at FFEP that were enriched to a level inconsistent with the level currently declared by Iran; and implementation of modified Code 3.1. The report also refers to an agreed Joint Statement between the Director General and the Vice-President of Iran and Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) of 4 March 2023.
