    Since building up its own stockpile off fissile material during the early decades of the Cold War, the United States has sought to verifiably halt the production of fissile material for weapons purposes. Along with the United States, Russia, the United Kingdom, and France have all publicly declared a halt to fissile material production for weapons. A Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty Understanding the Critical Issues. fissile material cut-off treaty (FMCT) is a proposed international agreement that would prohibit the production of the two main components of nuclear weapons: highly-enriched uranium (HEU) and plutonium.

    Von Hippel and his colleagues have worked on fissile material policy issues for the past 30 years, including contributions to: "ending the U.S. program to foster the commercialization of plutonium breeder reactors, convincing President Gorbachev to embrace the idea of a Fissile Material Production Cutoff Treaty, launching the U.S.-Russian. On , the United States proposed a draft Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty (FMCT) at the Conference on Disarmament (CD) in Geneva. The U.S. draft treaty, would enter into force with only the five established nuclear weapon states. It would ban new production of plutonium and highly enriched uranium for use in nuclear.

    There is already a proposed international treaty to prohibit the production of fissile material for weapons purposes, the Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty, but it is yet to be negotiated. Egypt continues to lobby against nuclear weapons. A Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty [FMCT] would strengthen nuclear non-proliferation norms by adding a binding international commitment to existing constraints on nuclear weapons-usable fissile material. The proposed treaty would ban the production of fissile material for nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices.

While the UN General Assembly has consistently supported resolutions calling for such a cutoff' sincethe recent discussions are principally the result of a proposal by President Clinton on Septemfor a "multilateral convention prohibiting the production of highly enriched uranium or plutonium for nuclear explosive purposes.

The "Program" included the production cutoff, a proposal to transfer agreed quantities of fissile material to non-weapons purposes, and IAEA safeguards for such transfers, among other proposals.

The program touched only generally on verification issues, which were to be settled by a proposed Nuclear Experts Commission.

On the date the treaty entered into force, all fissile material in the civilian sector and any material produced after that date would be subject to safeguards.

Genesis of Fissile Material Cut-off Negotiations The issue of fissile materials can be traced, back to as early as when 'Baruch Plan' was proposed by the USA to create an International Atomic Development Authority with the aim to.

A Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty (FMCT) would ban the production of fissile material - in practice highly-enriched uranium and separated plutonium - for weapons. It has been supported by strong majorities in the United Nations.

Likeminded states affirm that there is enough existing fissile material in the world to create new and more sophisticated nuclear weapons.

Some of these states sharing this view argue that the term “Fissile Material Treaty” would be more appropriate, as “Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty” implies merely a halt in production.
