Relevant lessons from national experience: Algeria

Algeria's commitment to nuclear safety and security is reflected through its domestic legal framework, ratification of numerous international instruments, training programmes, awareness campaigns and organization of conferences and seminars. To provide verification of the BWC, national legislation is under recommendation, while strict legal provisions have already been implemented to more fully support Algeria’s commitment to the CWC. Although UNSCR 1540 addresses the vertical and horizontal proliferation of WMD, there exists an imbalance between nuclear have- and have-not States that should be re-examined.
