On May 7th NTI Senior
Director Andrew Newman chaired a side event at the Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Treaty Preparatory Committee Meeting to discuss the practical activities of the
International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV).  With the program well into its second
multi-year phase, the IPNDV is taking its work from “paper to practice” through
hands-on exercises and technology demonstrations.  
These activities include an exercise on verification of non-diversion of
materials around a simulate
d nuclear warhead
dismantlement called “NuDiVe,”
led by Germany and France, and a Belgian-led demonstration assessing technology
methods to detect the presence or absence of nuclear material. Both activities
will include participants from several of the 25+ IPNDV partner countries.   

This event was hosted by Germany’s Foreign Office. Other speakers

  • Ambassador Peter Beerwerth,
    Permanent Representative of Germany to the Conference on Disarmament
  • Alexandre Quinet, Ministère des armées (France)
  • Irmgard Niemeyer, Forschungszentrum
    Jülich (Germany)
  • Klaas van der Meer, SCK-CEN Belgian Nuclear
    Research Centre
