Additional Information

Voluntary contribution in the amount of 180,000 euros in 2005 for a project aimed at enhancing capacity building through e-training, see CTBTO press release.

Through five so-called EU Joint Actions adopted in the framework of the European Union's Common Foreign and Security Policy, the Netherlands has made substantial voluntary contributions in support of the CTBTO's work in areas such as training, verification regime enhancement and technical assistance to third countries. Both the 2012 EU Joint Action and the preceding one in 2010 amounted to over € 5 million.

Hein Haak, Scientific Attaché at Permanent Mission of the Netherlands, has been chairing Working Group B (verification-related issues) of the CTBTO Preparatory Commission from 2005 to 2015.

The Netherlands was the 31st State to ratify the CTBT, see CTBTO press release.
