Abstract

By the very nature of its duties the Euratom Safeguards Directorate (ESD) has a considerable need for information generation, collection, treatment, transmission, storage, presentation and evaluation. This results from the high number of installations (presently over 480) under the control of ESD. All relevant data have to be available in a timely and standardized manner and fast access has to be assured for the users, i.e. all those who need the information for carrying out their safeguards duties: inspectors, accountants, evaluation and development staff and management. The use of computers and informatics at ESD as presented in this document comprises a description of the tasks, means and actions relevant in this context. Particular emphasis, however, is put on the practical application, i.e. on the definition of areas where an informatics support is needed, the methods to be applied, the software, how existing applications will be used on the ESD computer, how they are envisaged to be transferred to an integrated information system based on a common data base and how this system is planned to evolve in future.
