The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) - Membership

Any member of the UN or of any of the specialized agencies that signed the statute within 90 days after 26 October 1956 thereby became a charter member of the IAEA upon ratification of the statute. Other countries, even if not members of the UN or any of the specialized agencies, may be admitted by the General Conference of the IAEA upon recommendation of the Board of Governors.

As of April 2002 the IAEA had 134 members. Honduras applied for membership and was approved by the General Council, but had not yet deposited an instrument of acceptance of the statute.
