The International Atomic Energy Agency is an independent UN organisation created in 1957. It was set up to promote peaceful and safe use of nuclear energy and to ensure that nuclear material under its supervision or control is not used in such a way as to further any military purpose.

Finland is engaged in close cooperation with the IAEA and makes its expertise available also to other Member States through the IAEA. In 2020, Finland has also funded the IAEA's activities related to improving COVID-19 testing capacities in developing countries. Finland has provided substantive support to IAEA’s activities in monitoring the implementation of the Iran Nuclear Agreement (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), for example, and to strengthening nuclear security globally.
