The document from Syria includes a general plan of destruction for consideration by the OPCW Executive Council.
Under the terms of the Chemical Weapons Convention, new States Parties are also required to submit a declaration covering activities and facilities that are not prohibited under the Convention but can be subjected to routine verification measures as a confidence building measure and to establish the peaceful intent of commercial activities. Syria has also submitted such a declaration.
The first monthly report on the work of the OPCW-UN Joint Mission in Syria has been issued to States Parties by the Director-General and forwarded for submission to the Security Council through the UN Secretary-General. It covers the progress made since inspections began in Syria following the deployment of the advance team on 1 October. This work included the priority task of making inoperable chemical weapons production facilities, and mixing and filling plants.
