Annual Report 2000

On 19 November 1996, the Secretary-General of the United Nations convened a meeting of States Signatories, which adopted a Resolution establishing the Preparatory Commission for the CTBTO. Acting in conformity with the Resolution, the Commission established the Provisional Technical Secretariat (PTS) to assist it in carrying out the necessary preparations for the effective implementation of the Treaty. The PTS, located in Vienna, has now been in existence for around four years and I am pleased to report that, within this period, the PTS has matured into a fully fledged international organization capable of fulfilling its mandate effectively and efficiently. Following the guidance of the Preparatory Commission and its subsidiary organs - Working Group A (on administrative and budgetary matters), Working Group B (on verification matters) and the Advisory Group (on financial, budgetary and administrative matters) - the PTS has achieved significant progress. This report provides coverage of the achievements during the year 2000 in the implementation of the Commission’s seven Major Programmes: International Monitoring System; International Data Centre; Communications; On-Site Inspection; Evaluation; Policy-Making Organs; and Administration, Coordination and Support.  ....
