VERTIC’s National Implementation Measures (NIM) Programme is pleased to announce the publication of updated versions of its Fact Sheets on the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC), Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and National Authority for the Biological Weapons Convention. The Fact Sheets are available in Arabic, English, French, Russian and Spanish.

VERTIC’s Fact Sheets are intended to raise States’ awareness of the importance of establishing national implementation measures for the major CBRN treaties and related legal instruments. They provide guidance on the types of national implementation measures that may be required for, and basic facts about specific treaties.

The BWC and CWC Fact Sheets have been updated over the years and underwent a comprehensive revision in 2020 under a project funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
