Technical Meeting of National Authorities in Latin America and the Caribbean, Lima, Peru, 28 and 29 August 2006.

The Technical Secretariat supports States Parties in their national implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention. The focus of this work is to provide advice and assistance to the staff of National Authorities, in order to help them enhance their skills and expertise to facilitate effective, autonomous, national implementation. To do so, the Secretariat coordinates and hosts regular meetings of the National Authorities from around the world. CD-ROM, DVD and website information packages on CWC implementation are available.

Note: Legal experts have formed regional networks to facilitate the adoption of national legislation that bans and criminalises the misuse of chemicals as weapons.
