National Counterproliferation Center Seal

The National Counterproliferation Center (NCPC) integrates the counterproliferation efforts of the entire Intelligence Community to ensure that the US Government is postured to protect the country from Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). NCPC is a small, diverse group of Officers drawn from across the IC and devoted to integrating the IC's efforts.


Our Vision

Protect the American people from weapons of mass destruction. We promote innovative solutions to counter proliferation and posture the US Government and its partners to anticipate emerging threats and challenges.

Our Mission

Lead the Intelligence Community and interagency to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, their delivery systems, related technologies and expertise.


NCPC is one of four centers under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. It was founded in 2005 based on recommendations from the WMD Commission the same year and direction from the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004. NCPC helps counter threats against the United States from the proliferation of chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons and missiles capable of delivering them.
