    Abstract The weapons of mass destruction are regulated by separate international treaties. The chemical weapons con- vention (CWC) profi ted from the experience of the other two treaties. It was fortunate also in its timing, being concluded during the optimism of the immediate post-Cold War years. Principles of universality, equality and non-discrimination have ensured greater participation in the CWC. It is unique in outlawing an entire class of weapons, instituting a comprehensive verifi cation regime, establishing its own implementing organization, and inte- grating the relevant industry into its programme of work. This policy brief, drawing on a recent book, examines the record to date of the CWC’s implementing agency as well as the challenges yet to be met.
