Abstract : This paper reviews the existing treaties for ban and verification of the production and use of chemical weapons. The proposed Chemical Weapons Convection, its thrust areas of verifications, the organisations for and process of verification are described briefly. Various technical verification measures including field techniques, such as detector papers, tubes, enzyme tickets, etc. and analytical methods such as gas chromatography, microsensors, different spectrometry methods including IR techniques and stationary system are also discussed.
