Reporting by States Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons

Tasneem Jamal

This report is an overview of the discussions at the NPT Reporting Roundtable held in Ottawa on 8-9 January 2002.

The purpose of the Roundtable was to examine the NPT reporting requirement agreed at the 2000 NPT Review Conference and to consider how States parties could respond to this requirement, with the specific goal of providing useful advice and recommendations to the Government of Canada. The Roundtable considered the elements that should be contained in such reports, discussed the factors that need to be considered in development of a standardized reporting framework that Canada and other States parties could promote for use by all NPT States parties, and attempted to identify strategies through which Canada and other States parties could effectively insert such recommendations into the NPT review process. Participants were not asked to formally agree on any specific conclusions or recommendations, but a number of areas of common opinion were identified during the event, along with many other areas where questions or differences remained.
