Zangger Committee (Comité Zangger)

A multilateral export control regime, formed as the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons’ (NPT) Exporters Committee, that serves as the “faithful interpreter” of article III(2) of the NPT in order to inform the interpretation of nuclear export control policies for treaty members. The Zangger Committee maintains a “Trigger List” (International Atomic Energy Agency Information Circular 209 (INFCIRC/209 [12]), triggering safeguards as a condition of supply) of nuclear items to assist NPT parties in identifying equipment and materials subject to export controls.
