VERTIC (Verification Research, Training and Information Centre) is a non-governmental organization established in 1986 to promote effective verification of international agreements. VERTIC is primarily concerned with arms control and disarmament, peace, and environmental agreements. VERTIC has an international outlook, and is based in London.

VERTIC’s activities cover a wide range from negotiation of verification provisions, monitoring and verification, enforcement, and confidence-building measures.

VERTIC has been funded by both private foundations and organizations, and various governments including Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway and the United Kingdom.

In 2008 VERTIC participated in joint research with UK's Atomic Weapons Establishment and several Norwegian organisations to determine if verification of nuclear warhead dismantlement could be accomplished without access to secret weapons design information, which would help in any future worldwide nuclear disarmament.[1]
