Building Trust Through Verification

VERTIC is an independent, non-profit making charitable organisation. Our mission is to support the development, implementation and verification of international agreements and related regional and national initiatives.

VERTIC provides this support through research and analysis on verification regimes and implementation in a series of openly available publications. The centre also offers training through workshops carried out around the world, as well as through our internship programme. We help governments and international organisations in their efforts to make regimes binding by offering ratification/accession support. VERTIC also assists governments in translating commitments undertaken in international law into national legislation. We conduct all our work in an objective and impartial manner.
