The United States recognizes the Hague Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missiles Proliferation as an outstanding example of international cooperation and applauds the Code’s 15 year record of promoting transparency and confidence building measures as well as generating a broad international predisposition against ballistic missile proliferation.

Since it was launched in The Hague in 2002, subscription to the Code has grown to include 138 countries and has contributed significantly to international nonproliferation efforts.

The U.S. government looks forward to continuing our close cooperation with all Subscribing States to promote ballistic missile nonproliferation and encourages all countries that have not yet done so to subscribe to the Code.
