This index serves as a tool for stakeholders to find real, open source examples of laws and regulations on chemical security. These legal texts can be used to help governments determine practical approaches to enhance their national chemical security practices. The Stimson Center seeks to help increase the relatively low levels of implementation of national measures to secure chemical weapons related materials in support of the objectives of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and the obligations of UNSCR 1540.
