The treaty provides for a verification system which includes: International monitoring system for monitoring compliance or violation of treaty provisions.

Their purpose was to prepare proposals for the regulation, limitation and balanced reduction in stages of all armed forces and all armaments. States not owning nuclear weapons shall not manufacture such weapons, attempt to obtain control of such weapons belonging to other states, or seek or receive information or materials necessary for their manufacture.
