VERTIC participates in BWC legislative drafting workshops in Colombia and Mongolia

Legal Officers Yasemin Balci and Sonia Drobysz participated in two workshops to draft implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention in Colombia and Mongolia.
The first workshop took place in Bogota from 9 to 11 September; the second was held in Ulaanbaatar from 1 to 3 October. During both workshops, attended by relevant government officials from various ministries, measures such as offences and penalties, transfer controls, biosafety and biosecurity provisions were discussed as part of a draft bill for the implementation of the BWC.
The workshops formed part of the BWC Action, a programme of the ‘European Union Council Decision in Support of the BWC’, which aims to support the BWC on the international, regional and national levels through three major projects, namely universality and national implementation; confidence in compliance; and strengthening international cooperation and encouraging international discussion on the future of the BWC.
