All Southeast Asian countries involved in this project are party to the relevant international treaties and conventions, namely the UN Non-proliferation treaty to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology; the Chemical Weapons Convention on the prohibition of the development, production, stockpiling, and use of chemical weapons. However it should be elucidated whether all partner countries have already domesticated these conventions and created appropriate national legislation with the means to enforce compliance.
The overall objective of the project of which this contract will be a part is to achieve enhanced chemical safety and security in the region, taking the country-specific baseline situation into account.
