Since atomic weapons testing started on 16 July 1945, about 2,000 have occurred. In the beginning of atomic testing little thought was given to its staggering impacts on human life, not to mention the threats of atomic aftermath from barometrical tests.

Knowing the past and history has demonstrated to us the unnerving and sad impacts of atomic weapons testing, particularly when controlled conditions go amiss, and considering the unmistakably increasingly amazing and damaging atomic weapons that exist today.

On 2 December 2009, the 64th meeting of the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 29 August the International Day against Nuclear Tests by consistently embracing goals 64/35. The goals calls for expanding mindfulness and training 'about the impacts of atomic weapon test blasts or some other atomic blasts and the requirement for their discontinuance as one of the methods for accomplishing the objective of an atomic without weapon world.'

The goals was started by the Republic of Kazakhstan, along with countless backers and cosponsors with the end goal of recognizing the conclusion of the Semipalatinsk Nuclear Test site on 29 August 1991.
2010 denoted the debut celebration of the International Day against Nuclear Tests. In each resulting year, the day has been seen by planning different exercises all through the world, for example, symposia, gatherings, displays, rivalries, distributions, addresses, media communicates and different activities.

Since its foundation, numerous reciprocal and multilateral legislative level improvements just as expansive developments in common society have assisted with propelling the reason for restricting atomic tests.
In addition, 'persuaded that atomic demilitarization and the all out disposal of atomic weapons are the main undeniable certainty against the utilization or danger of atomic weapons,' the General Assembly assigned 26 September as the 'Universal Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons', which is given to encouraging the target of the all out end of atomic weapons, through the preparation of global endeavors.

The International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons was watched without precedent for September 2014. The International Day against Nuclear Tests, along with different occasions and activities, has encouraged a worldwide situation that firmly advocates for a world liberated from atomic weapons.
