Terrorist attacks using CBRNE materials − chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosives – could have catastrophic consequences on communities and infrastructure.
We support our member countries in preventing, preparing for and responding to such an attack. This means putting in place prevention and response mechanisms, coordinated among the agencies concerned, including police, customs, border controls, public health professionals, the military, intelligence services and environmental management.
We do this in three ways: through information sharing and intelligence analysis, capacity building and training, and operational support.
These activities support UN Security Council Resolution 1540 (2004) which recognizes border controls and law enforcement efforts as central to countering the proliferation of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons and their misuse by non-state actors.
