Belgium is hosting U.S. non-strategic nuclear weapons as part of NATO’s nuclear sharing policy. It neither participated in the negotiation conference of the TPNW, nor signed the treaty. Along with other U.S. allies, Belgium advocates the “progressive approach” toward a world without nuclear weapons, through implementing practical measures. It has engaged in promoting the CTBT’s entry into force, and developing its verification systems.

Nuclear Non-Proliferation

54/61 (88.5%)

Belgium acceded to the IAEA Additional Protocol, and has been applied the integrated safeguards. It has engaged in non-proliferation, including the establishment of the solid export control systems.

Nuclear Security

28/41 (68.3%)

Belgium has ratified all treaties related to nuclear security and is also working to minimize HEU and to prevent illicit transfers. In light of the attempted terrorist attacks on nuclear power plants that were discovered after the Brussels terror attack in March 2016, Belgium has been actively strengthening nuclear security, including provisionally placing domestic nuclear facilities under military guard.
