BWC Compendium of National Approaches to Biosafety & Biosecurity

This page provides information on national approaches to biosafety and biosecurity, as provided to the Implementation Support Unit by States Parties. It was created as a resource for the 2008 meetings of the BWC.

In his letters to States Parties, the Chair of the 2008 meetings requested "a brief outline or overview" of national approaches to the topics under consideration "to optimise our use of time". He went on to add that this was not "extra or additional information, or... any kind of reporting requirement" but that the compendium was a tool to enable information generated by meetings of the BWC to be shared in a more efficient manner and more readily accessible to assist States Parties in their preparations for the meetings, during their national activities and in preparation for the Seventh Review Conference and future efforts.
