"The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on Their Destruction ('CWC' or 'Convention'); which entered into force for the United States on April 29, 1997; imposes a number of obligations on the United States. The Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Act of 1998 ('the Act'), enacted on October 21, 1998, Executive Order 13128, and associated Chemical Weapons Convention Implementation Policy Guidance elaborate many of these obligations and assign some specific responsibilities within the Executive Branch. Among the specific responsibilities is the designation of the Department of State as United States National Authority for the purposes of the Convention and the Act. This document specifies agency and departmental responsibilities."
