BIS Amends Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) today published in the Federal Register a final rule amending the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations (CWCR) (15 CFR Parts 710-722). The final rule revises the CWCR by removing outdated provisions (e.g., the initial declaration requirements in parts 713, 714, and 715) and including additional requirements identified as necessary for the implementation of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) provisions and by clarifying other CWC requirements. The changes made by this rule were eaddressed in a proposed rule and request for public comments that BIS published on December 7, 2004.

The Chemical Weapons Convention, which entered into force on April 29, 1997 bans the development, production, stockpiling or use of chemical weapons and prohibits members to the CWC from assisting or encouraging anyone to engage in a prohibited activity. The CWC also requires signatories to report exports and imports and to impose export and import restrictions on certain chemicals.
