Abstract:

This document identifies a list of Chemical Weapons Convention CWC State Party functions cited in the order in which they appear in Conference on Disarmament document CD1116. The term function as used here means the fulfillment of explicit obligations under the CWC, or any actions implicit in their fulfillment. The text describes the functional categories in which the functions have been placed and describes the operational capabilities assigned to carry out these functions. Capability is defined as having the ability or capacity qualified. In the Appendix CD1116 is quoted with the functions themselves highlighted in bold type. Then a shortened version of each function is given. A functional category identifies each function, and the analysis suggests the operational capabilities required to perform it. A table is included which lists the shortened form of the functions, by category, and cross-references them by page number in the Appendix. Chemical Weapons Convention, Functional Categories, Operational Capabilities, State Party Functions.
