nuclear non-proliferation
The main objective of the Non-Proliferation is to ensure that nuclear material, facilities, equipments and related technologies are used for peaceful purposes only.
 
international obligations are executed through the following:

South Africa acceded to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons on 10 July 1991. The objective of the Treaty is to prevent spread of Nuclear Weapons other than that 5 Nuclear Weapon States (United States, United Kingdom, France, China, and Russia), facilitate peaceful nuclear co-operation between Treaty members and provide foundation for nuclear disarmament.
 
Agreement of 16 September 1991 between the Government of the Republic of South Africa and the International Atomic Energy Agency for the Application of Safeguards in connection with the treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
 
South Africa concluded Additional Protocol (Protocol Additional to the agreement between the RSA and the IAEA for the application of safeguards in connection with the treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons) on 13 September 2002
 
Nuclear Supplier Group. Nuclear Supplier Group is a 45 member group of nuclear supplier which seeks to contribute to the non-Proliferation of nuclear weapons through the implementation of guidelines for nuclear related exports but that is accordance with a particular country’s laws. South Africa joined the NSG on 5 April 1995.
 
The Zannger Committee and NSG differ slightly in the scope of their trigger list. The Zannger list is redistricted to items falling under Article (III).2 of the NPT.
 
The Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material (CPPNM), entered into force in 1987. It obliges States Parties to implement specific protection measures for nuclear material in international transport and ensure protection at the levels specified in the Convention, of nuclear material used for peaceful purposes on their territories, ships or aircraft during international nuclear transport. The Convention was amended in July 2005. South Africa ratified the original Convention on 17 September 2007. The process to accede to the amended Convention is in progress.
 
The Pelindaba Treaty, also called the African Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone Treaty is a treaty prohibiting the production and absolute control over the nuclear weapons in the African region.
