Republic of Georgia has CBRN action plan

A chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) national action plan for the Republic of Georgia was approved Friday.

The action plan was approved by the Georgian Interagency Coordinating Council for Countering CBRN Threats.

The plan's development was supported by the European Union's CBRN Risk Mitigation Centers of Excellence and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI).
  
“Since November 2012, the new Georgian government and equally the Ministry of Internal Affairs have started implementing significant reform," Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Georgia H.E. Levan Izoria said. "Along with numerous areas, they also addressed the CBRN policy sphere. Georgian Prime Minster and then-Interior Minister Irakli Gharibashvili devoted significant attention and attached high priority to the CBRN security field. ... It was the unified response to the challenges the country has been facing in this direction.”

The action plan incorporates efforts that aim to improve national capacities for the preparedness, detection, response and overall security on a national and regional level with regard to CBRN threats.

This action plan is applicable until 2019 and will be overseen by the council.

Georgian authorities received advice and expertise from U.S. and UNICRI sources.
