Consequence Management after a CBRN Incident Course was organized by the Joint CBRN Defence Centre of Excellence and held at Allvet Hotel from 10 to 14 November 2014.
The course was organized under Science for Peace and Security Programme (SPSS). SPSS is a NATO policy tool, founded in 1958, that enhances cooperation and dialogue with all partners. It promotes civil, security-related practical cooperation, and focuses on a growing range of contemporary security challenges, including terrorism, defence against CBRN agents, cyber defence, energy security and environmental concerns, human and social aspects of security.
A Quality Assurance (QA) Team of experts (TOE) from Allied Command Transformation (ACT) visited JCBRND COE on 3 and 4 November 2014. The aim of the visit was to determine if COE meets the established standards and criteria in education and training.
Referring to Bi-SC 75-7 Education and Individual Training Directive the purpose of QA is “to establish processes and procedures ensuring the highest possible degree of quality for NATO’s E&T while at the same time providing autonomy and flexibility to the institutions involved, to the programmes and modules/courses. It furthermore provides the basis for the coordination between E&T stakeholders and for continuous improvement of transparent E&T quality.
We are invited to participate CBRN Symposium in Berlin (19th - 21st October 2015, Berlin, Germany).
The increased occurrence of natural CBRN hazardous substances, potential threats arising from in-dustrial infrastructures, and the use of CBRN weapons (Weapons of Mass Destruction/warfare agents) and CBRN hazardous substances used by both governmental and non-governmental actors are the main categories of CBRN threats.
These CBRN categories demand the development of a modern CBRN defence as part of a country’s overall defence and security system. These threat categories have in part been created and intensi-fied through globalization and the (inter-) networking of all countries and societies. It coincides with a worldwide transfer of knowledge that knows no boundaries, also in areas of sensitive technologies. Threats that arise from proliferation also have decisive impact on the development of CBRN defence capabilities.
