The diagnostic requirements for an experimental fusion reactor are outlined. The JET diagnostics are described briefly and their possible extrapolation to a typical Next Step fusion device (ITER) is considered. Key areas where developments are necessary are identified and possible ways of implementing the diagnostics are discussed. It is concluded that it should be possible to measure most plasma quantities using extrapolations of established techniques, but new approaches may be needed for certain important quantities.
