The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) is a multilateral treaty prohibiting the testing of nuclear weapons. By banning nuclear explosions, the treaty seeks to prevent the harmful effects of radioactive fall-out on society and the environment. The treaty also intends to prevent new countries from acquiring and testing nuclear weapons technology and discourage the production of new types of nuclear weapons. The CTBT puts international norms against testing into binding international law and represents a critical move toward nuclear disarmament.
