The Relic Arms Reduction Treaty (遗迹武器限制条约)[1][2][3] is an agreement made between the Soviet Union and the United States in 1981 in order to stop the adverse impacts of relics technology research on the world's sanitary situation.

During the Cold war, the rate of ELID infections was growing rapidly with the intensity of relics research, as more people were exposed to the radiations from the Collapse Fluid contained in the relics sites. The disease was incurable with the current technology, and no techniques to protect against it existed due to a lack of comprehension of its vectors (Weight Bearing platforms would not appear until 2012). There had been an estimated 150 000 ELID infections worldwide between the first documented case in 1976 and 1980, with about 10 000 becoming ELID infected. 50 000 new cases had appeared a year later, with a higher percentage of infected and new mutation forms. High variance in infection conditions and combat data rendered global studies useless. Countries started to create special units dedicated to manage ELID cases, like the Chinese Special Circumstances Armed Police Force, but infection rate of these agents was high.

By 1981 the growth rate was deemed too dangerous both by the West and the East. With mediation from the Vatican and World Health Organization, the Treaty took place in 1981 and was signed on November 3rd. Both parties agreed to stop relics research effort for the time being, to dismantle currently deployed relics weapons like Soviet Pikes, and to work toward a vaccine for ELID, with research debuting on 1983 and eventually reducing the number of infection cases.[4] The Soviet gulag experimental installations in the Falkland Islands also passed under the United Nations Medical Research Institute as part of the Treaty.[5] The American ARPA recognized the experimental use of relics technology during the Vietnam War in exchange for Soviet data on Pikes,[6] and ARPA also ceased their project to use ARPANET as an autonomous control system for their Aurora strategic bomber program.[2]

The Treaty would later be expanded into international collaboration on relics technology, leading to the formation of the United Nations Relic Science Agency and the GAVIRUL Reproduction Projects.[4]
