In its latest report, the UN watchdog says it has been unable to clear up questions about a possible military dimension to Iran's nuclear work.
Iran confirmed the lack of progress but blamed the watchdog for not adopting an appropriate approach in negotiations.
Iran says it is enriching uranium only for civilian atomic energy.
Western nations accuse Iran of seeking to develop a nuclear weapon.
In its report, the IAEA said that Iran was failing to cooperate with its investigators.
As a result, the IAEA "regrettably has not been able to make any substantive progress" on key issues which remain of serious concern, it said.
The report, which will be discussed by the IAEA's board of governors next week, calls for Iran to show greater transparency and allow investigators greater access.
