The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) contains a special mechanism to promote its entry into force – a conference designed to facilitate this objective takes place every other year.

The tenth Article XIV conference will take place on 20 September 2017 at the United Nations headquarters in New York, USA.
