Resolution 1540 states that the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and their means of delivery constitutes a threat to international peace and security.

The 1540 Committee, established in 2004 by UN Security Council Resolution 1540, has become the cornerstone of the regime to ensure the non-proliferation of WMD., establishing very close links among the different components of the international non-proliferation architecture.
Unfortunately, in a globalised world, terrorists can easily use the internet to access the know-howto create WMD, obtain funding from sources beyond the control of international financial bodies, or even make use of sophisticated 3D printing technologies to design WMD components.These new realities are taking place in the so-called “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. To address this new reality, the 1540 Committee, currently chaired by Spain, is conducting a Comprehensive Review of the resolution adopted in 2004.
The purpose of this publication is to gather opinions and suggestions made by experts from various fields to face up new challenges which may arise from the implementation of Resolution 1540.
