The country will also resume taking apart its nuclear reactor on Tuesday.
The International Atomic Energy Agency says Pyongyang has reinstated UN monitoring of the five-megawatt nuclear reactor, a nuclear fuel-generating facility, and a reprocessing plant capable of producing weapons-grade plutonium.
Pyongyang pledged on Sunday to resume steps to disable its nuclear facilities in a deal with Washington.
The US State Department announced on Saturday that it had removed the DPRK from a sponsors-of-terrorism blacklist, after Pyongyang agreed to a series of verification steps.
Pyongyang had barred the UN inspectors from Yongbyon last Thursday, angered by Washington's refusal to clear its name from the blacklist.
