The International Code of Conduct against Ballistic Missile Proliferation, also known asthe Hague Code of Conduct (HCOC), was established on 25 November 2002 as anarrangement to prevent the proliferation of ballistic missiles.

It is the result of international efforts to regulate access to ballistic missileswhich can potentially deliver weapons of mass destruction. The HCOC is the onlymultilateral code in the area of disarmament which has been adopted over the lastyears.

It is the only normative instrument to verify the spread of ballistic missiles. The HCOCdoes not ban ballistic missiles, but it does call for restraint in their production, testing,and export.

the HCOC. India joined the hague code of conduct on 1 june, 2016.
