The Statute of the IAEA was approved on 23 October 1956 by the Conference on the Statute of the International Atomic Energy Agency, which was held at the Headquarters of the United Nations. It came into force on 29 July 1957.
The Statute has been amended three times by application of the procedure laid down in paragraphs A and C of Article XVIII. On 31 January 1963, some amendments to the first sentence of the then paragraph A.3 of Article Vl came into force; the Statute as thus amended was further amended on 1 June 1973 by the coming into force of a number of amendments to paragraphs A to D of the same Article (involving a renumbering of sub-paragraphs in paragraph A); and on 28 December 1989 an amendment in the introductory part of paragraph A.l came into force. All these amendments have been incorporated in the text of the Statute, which consequently supersedes all earlier editions.
The Medium Term Strategy has been prepared through a joint consultation process among Member States and the Secretariat. It covers a period of six years from 2018 to 2023.
The Medium Term Strategy serves as a strategic direction and roadmap for the Secretariat to prepare the Agency’s programme and budget during the period covered by it, by identifying priorities among and within its programmes for three biennia for the achievement of the Agency’s statutory objectives in an evolving international environment.
The Medium Term Strategy 2018–2023 draws upon the implementation of the Medium Term Strategy 2012–2017 and may be updated, if deemed necessary by the Board of Governors, before the start of a programme and budget preparation process, adapting to new developments and evolving needs and priorities of Member States.
