The NPT Briefing Book is a reference guide containing a wide selection of documents related to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and its review process. It is widely used by national delegations as well as members of the civil society as part of their preparation for NPT meetings. The Briefing Book represents a ‘living document’ that has been regularly updated since the early 1990s. It was first published in 1990 by Professor John Simpson under the auspices of the Mountbatten Centre for International Studies at the University of Southampton. In 2012, the Briefing Book found a new home in the Centre for Science and Security Studies (CSSS) at King’s College London and is produced in partnership with the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies.

The book is divided into two parts, one offering introductory materials on nuclear weapons and nuclear energy as well as a brief history of the Treaty and significant milestones in its review process and the second part containing the texts of relevant NPT review process documentation in addition to updates on the UN, IAEA and international developments relevant to the NPT review process.
