Abstract

In recent years information systems have multiplied rapidly, reflecting the wide ranging developments in the technologies upon which they depend. However it is often difficult to assess the effectiveness of information systems because the criteria upon which such a judgement may be based, have not been defined. This paper proposes that three general considerations should be observed, namely that information must be handled efficiently, economically and with due regard to security. Since these considerations obviously present themselves differently according to circumstances, the paper examines the form they took in the particular case of Euratom Safeguards Directorate. It might be interesting to consider whether this approach could be used as a guide to evaluating the contribution of information systems in the field of safeguards.
