Our Mission

The U.S. National and Nuclear Risk Reduction Center (NNRRC) is the United States’ 24/7/365 communications center for exchanging notifications with foreign counterparts as required under arms control treaties and security-building agreements. NNRRC Watch Officers translate and transmit notifications in six languages (English, Russian, German, French, Spanish, and Italian) with Russia, members of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, the Secretariat of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, the Secretariat of the Hague Code of Conduct, and other international partners on issues ranging from nuclear and conventional arms control, ballistic missile launch notifications, chemical weapons destruction, and international cyber incidents.
