Chemical weapons disarmament
History of chemical weapons usage starts deeply in past. Application of sulfur and toxic gases is dated in ancient China or during Peloponnesian War (around 430 B.C.). Development of society and science during the ages led to discovery of various chemicals, which were massively used in the weapons, especially during First World War. Harmful effects and unnecessary victims were the major impulse to the world to take control over these chemicals and related weapons. After years of negotiations the international document called „Convention on the prohibition of the development, production, stockpiling and use of chemical weapons and on their destructions” was entered into force 20 years ago, on 29th April 1997. This convention is one of the key international documents in the area of non-proliferation of weapon of mass destruction. The Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in collaboration with national authorities controls the respect of this convention all over the world. The national authority in Czech Republic is State office of nuclear safety.
