The Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) contains a comprehensive and unequivocal prohibition of chemical weapons and chemical warfare. There was no change to states parties to the CWC during 2022: as of December 2022, there were still 193 states parties and 4 states not party to the CWC, including Israel, which has signed but not ratified it, and Egypt, North Korea and South Sudan, which have neither signed nor ratified or acceded to the CWC.1
