Contact OPCW Public Affairs

The OPCW Public Affairs Branch operates from 9:00 – 18:00 CET, Monday to Friday (excluding holidays).

We will do our best to accommodate all requests as quickly as possible, but given a high volume of media requests, we cannot always answer immediately.

Interview Requests

Interviews are granted at the discretion of the Director-General. All requests for interviews must be sent to OPCW Public Affairs to be logged and processed. 

Confidentiality and the OPCW

The OPCW is a treaty-based organisation that operates under a strict confidentiality regime, which governs the operations of the Organisation, protects the integrity of its investigations, ensures the security of its technical experts, and determines what information can be made public. 

The OPCW does not share operational details about sensitive OPCW activities (e.g. on-going investigations, the Fact-Finding Mission (FFM), team deployments).
