Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPWC)

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is the intergovernmental organisation which oversees the global endeavour for the permanent and verifiable elimination of chemical weapons.

The OPCW is the implementing body for the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), which entered into force on 29 April 1997. The organisation promotes and verifies the adherence to the CWC, which prohibits the use of chemical weapons and requires their destruction. Verification consists both of evaluation of declarations by member states and onsite inspections.

The OPCW has 193 member states, and is headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands. The Organisation is currently advertising the following vacant posts:
