Becoming a partner to the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GICNT) involves endorsing the GICNT Statement of Principles (SOP), reflecting a commitment to take steps to improve accounting, control, and protection of nuclear and radiological materials and facilities; develop capabilities to detect and halt illicit trafficking of such materials; prevent terrorists/other non-state actors from acquiring nuclear materials; put in place laws to counter nuclear terrorism-related activity; share information; and develop a capability to respond and mitigate acts of nuclear terrorism.

The principles contained within the SOP aim to develop partnership capacity to combat nuclear terrorism, consistent with national legal authorities and obligations as well as relevant international legal frameworks such as the Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism, the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material, and United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1373 and 1540.
