The 1540 Compass published the article ‘VERTIC: Legal and Regulatory Assisance’ written by Rocío Escauriaza Leal, VERTIC Legal Officer.

The 1540 Compass gathers views, comments, and ideas for effective implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1540 to prevent WMD proliferation and terrorism by non-state actors. The journal is published by the Center for International Trade & Security (University of Georgia), in cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs.

In her article Rocío outlines the assistance services provided by VERTIC to implement UNSCR 1540, and highlights some lessons learned from the field and the existing legislative gaps in BWC implementation.

The article also presents on the expansion of VERTIC's National Implementation Measures Programme, which now aims to provide assistance with comprehensive implementation of UNSCR 1540 and outlines the new approaches to achieve this aim, including cooperation with international partners.
