The Implementation Assistance Programme (IAP) software is furnished for the purpose of assisting States Parties in implementing their Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) obligations. This version (Beta 1.0) is assumed to be error free, but has NOT been validated by either the Technical Secretariat of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons or any other independent entity. Therefore, this version of the IAP should NOT be used as the sole methodology for implementing your CWC obligations. As a beta version, the software should operate correctly, but remains under test prior to final acceptance and re-issue as a non-beta version.
