Medical Reference Publication

Excerpt
National and international law was identified in Chapter 2 as an essential component of the array of measures serving to protect against the hostile release of biological or chemical agents, and to help to mitigate the consequences should such a release nevertheless take place. The present chapter describes the pertinent features of that law. At the international level, the most important legal instruments are the BWC and the CWC. Both provide for international cooperation in order to prevent the use of chemical and biological weapons, and for assistance and cooperation where breaches of these treaties are suspected, especially when such weapons have been used. The chapter begins with an account of the Geneva Protocol of 1925, which for several decades was the principal international treaty in the field. The two conventions are then described in turn, information being given about the international obligations that they establish and the national measures required to fulfil those obligations. The status of individual WHO Member States under the three treaties is set out in Annex 7.
