Abstract

We have earlier explained that verification is a means to determine whether a State is complying with its disarmament or non-proliferation obligations under a particular agreement. Compliance issues are, therefore, our first area for specific attention. Compliance measures become necessary only if the verification process detects significant violations. They result from a thorough evaluation of information at different stages: the analysis of information from declarations and other sources, from ongoing technical monitoring, from import/export monitoring and, ultimately, from on-site inspections.
