"I salute the Arms Control Association … for its keen vision of the goals ahead and for its many efforts to identify and to promote practical measures that are so vitally needed to achieve them."

Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR)
 

The Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) is an informal association of governments with common interests in missile, unmanned air vehicle, and related technology nonproliferation. It began with France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States with an interim agreement to control nuclear-capable ballistic missiles. Its goal is to limit risks of proliferation by controlling transfers to delivery systems capable of weapons of mass destruction. States must follow laws and procedures which include information-sharing. There is no formal mechanism to ensure compliance.
