The 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) is the principal international legal basis for the prohibition of chemical warfare.1 No state acceded to the convention in 2017, although South Sudan indicated that it intended to do so shortly. As of December 2017, there were 192 states parties to the convention, which is implemented by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).2
