Ban Ki-moon, “Message of the Secretary-General of the United Nations,” in “Scientific Progress in monitoring and verifying CTBT,” CTBTO, June 2013, p. 5, The Government of Canada transmits to the IDC the data recorded or acquired using the formats and protocols to be indicated in the mechanism`s operating manual. This transmission is carried out through the most immediate and cost-effective means available through the National Computing Centre or through appropriate communication nodes. All data shipments to PrepCom through the PTS are free and all other fees charged by the government or a competent authority in Canada, with the exception of fees directly related to the costs of providing a service, which must not exceed the lowest rates charged to Canadian public authorities.

According to the CTBT, a facility agreement must be concluded with each of the 89 states that host IMS facilities. At the beginning of 2017, the facilities agreements came into force with 41 Member States (which together house a total of about 50% of all IMS agencies), while 8 others (8% of IMS bodies) have already been signed. Forty Member States (44% of all ISS institutions) have not yet signed an easy agreement.
