RC-5 – Fifth Review Conference

World Forum Convention Centre, The Hague

15 – 19 May 2023

The Convention foresees that the States Parties should undertake a review of the implementation process every five years. These Review Conferences serve as fora for the assessment and evaluation of the CWC’s implementation and setting long-term views by providing strategic guidance to the OPCW.

Particular focus is given to the verification regime, the changing context within which it is implemented and scientific and technological advances in chemistry, engineering, and biotechnology.
