The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty obligates all parties not to conduct “any nuclear weapon test explosion or any other nuclear explosion” in any environment (i.e., in the atmosphere, underwater, underground, or in space) and to refrain from encouraging or helping any other state to carry out such explosions (Article I).

Policy and Global Affairs. NATIONAL RESEARCH COUNCIL OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES. THE NATIONAL ACADEMIES PRESS Washington, D.C.

The correct full name of the treaty appears to be "Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty". In the article the name is given as "Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty". But neither of these are the article name, or indeed redirect here. I propose the article be moved to "Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty". Any objections? The States Parties hereby establish the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty Organization (hereinafter referred to as "the Organization") to achieve the object and purpose of this Treaty, to ensure the implementation of its provisions, including those for international verification of compliance with it, and to provide a forum for consultation.

After a half century in which nuclear weapons were developed, tested, and used, a Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) banning all nuclear explosions has been negotiated and signed by countries (as of Febru ) including the United States.   This would be true in general and specifically at the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization in Vienna, which the United States supports by providing 20 percent of its funding.
