WG on Prevention of CBW: members of the WG met in annual session on May …. with the Biological and Chemical Defence Review Committee (BCDRC), which was set up in 1990 to review the DND research, development and training programs in biological and chemical defence. Its mandate is to insure that all programs are defensive in nature and do not threaten public safety or the environment. It also serves a liaison function with the public through meetings like the one we had and through publication of its annual report. The BCDRC panel consists of three Canadian academics in the chemical and biological sciences. They are chaperoned by a retired general once a year to relevant sites in Canada (ranging from Camp Borden to the testing range at Suffield, Alberta). Contact: Walter Dorn TEL 416-…….
