UN Entity Layer: 
Security Council

The United Nation's Counter-Terrorism and Non-Proliferation Committees consists of two commttees. There are the Counter-Terrorism Committee and the 1540 Committee.

Guided by Security Council resolutions 1373 (2001) and 1624 (2005), the Counter-Terrorism Committee  (CTC)  works to bolster the ability of United Nations Member States to prevent terrorist acts both within their borders and across regions. It was established in the wake of the 11 September terrorist attacks in the United States. 

The 1504 Committee and its four working groups continue to hold meetings. Current activities include the preparation of a comprehensive review of resolution 1540 (2004) before December 2016. The Committee is also examining incoming first reports, preparing a compilation of effective practices, and updating the legislative database. The Committee is reviewing procedures on processing incoming assistance requests and offers of assistance and is producing a calendar of outreach events and similar activities. The Committee is also updating the matrices of all Member States.
