Every five years, there is a major Review Conference of states parties to the NPT. Held at the UN Headquarters in New York, Review Conferences have since 1975 brought NPT states together to find agreement on a final declaration that would assess the implementation of the Treaty's provisions and make recommendations on measures to further strengthen and fulfil its objectives and requirements.

The treaty was indefinitely extended in 1995, together with decisions on strengthening the review process and principles and objectives for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament, as well as a resolution on the Middle East, a region of major proliferation concern.
