The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is responsible for implementing the Chemical Weapons Convention, which bans the use of chemical weapons and requires their elimination. The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons consists of three entities: the Conference of the States Parties, the Executive Council, and the Technical Secretariat. The Conference of the States Parties currently comprises 147 representatives, one from each member state, and oversees the implementation of the convention. The Executive Council, consisting of 41 representatives from regionally distributed member states, meets in sessions throughout the year to supervise the Secretariat's activities. The Secretariat, headed by the Director-General, manages the organization's daily operations, including implementing the inspection measures of the convention and preparing the organization's annual budgets and reports.
