Science and Technology

Science and Technology (S&T) directly inform key articles of the Chemical Weapons Convention including those that:

  • define what constitutes a chemical weapon;
  • ensure completeness of declarations;
  • guarantee the application of sampling and analysis and other verification methodologies;
  • provide the processes for inspections, investigations and destruction methodologies; and
  • govern assistance and protection and outreach to scientific communities.  


This section of our website is intended to provide information on the S&T dimensions of our work.
