The Joint Research Centre of the Commission of the European Communities has provided technical support to the Euratom Safeguards Directorate for more than two decades. During the last few years there has been an evolution in the technical issues to be addressed in order to respond to the new challenges of nuclear safeguards in European Community countries. This paper presents the highlights of achievement in the areas of support for NDA, surveillance, sealing/identification techniques and material accountancy information systems, including the present training programme of inspectors. For each of the above areas a short analysis is made of the future trends in the technical support activities and of the need to maintain appropriate R/D activities to satisfy future requests for technical support.
