One hundred and forty-four states have now undertaken the commitment never, under any circumstances, to develop, produce, or stockpile or otherwise acquire or retain biological or toxin weapons.  They have rightly recognized that the use of biological agents and toxins as weapons would, in the words of the Convention’s Preamble, “be repugnant to the conscience of mankind”. Preventing the use or threat of use of biological agents and toxins is more important that ever.  The horrific attacks of 11 September in the United States could have been worse if weapons of mass destruction had been used.  (...) The renewed global focus on terrorism has brought concerns about biological and toxin weapons to the fore.  Missing this opportunity, given difficulties in negotiations on other weapons of mass destruction, would only exacerbate the current crises in multilateral disarmament diplomacy in general.

(...) Item 6: Discussion of national mechanisms to establish and maintain the security and oversight of pathogenic microorganisms and toxins (“topic ii”) 6. As with item 5, States Parties will be invited to make national presentations related to this topic, with a view to developing and expanding on specific ideas and proposals which they put forward at the Meeting of Experts. Based on the common elements which emerged from presentations and discussions at the Meeting of Experts, these presentations will be divided according to the following four themes (with the first also applying to “topic i”): • Enforcement: national penal legislation to protect facilities and transport systems that possess, handle, use or transport potentially dangerous pathogens and toxins, including requirements limiting handling, use and transport of such pathogens to registered facilities and authorized personnel. • Biosecurity evaluation and implementation of biosecurity procedures: establishment of national programmes to evaluate and implement biosecurity procedures based both on intrinsic pathogen danger and likelihood of diversion, including oversight of facilities, transport systems and personnel possessing, handling, using and transporting potentially dangerous pathogens and toxins, as well as national measures to secure pathogen collections and the control of their use for peaceful purposes, and the value of biosecurity measures and procedures to ensure that such dangerous materials are not accessible to persons who could misuse them for purposes contrary to the Convention.

This year the Group of Experts participated in the annual Biological and Toxin Weapons convention 6 of Governmental Experts in August as well as in a regional workshop on the BTWC for States in East Africa aimed at promoting universalization of membership of the BTWC. (...) As the possibility of use or threat of use of biological and toxin weapons or other toxic materials by terrorists and other non-State actors cannot be excluded, our common goal also extends to providing safety and security of such materials. (...) I wish this meeting every success and look forward to hearing your views on how we might best work together to realize a world safer from the threat of disease or toxins used as weapons. Thank you very much.

Human health risks arise from pathogens and the spread of disease vectors, chemicals and toxins, and abuse of antibiotics. The risks associated with chemicals and toxins arise from several sources, including veterinary drug residues, agricultural chemicals, pesticides, and accumulation of other pollutants. In addition, under certain conditions, some cultured species can produce toxins. Poor farming practices have led to major commercial losses when importing countries have placed import restrictions on shrimp and other products from Asia and Latin America as a result of unacceptable levels of antibiotic residues in products. (...) In addition, certain types of marine fish naturally contain toxic compounds or may be particularly susceptible to contamination with naturally-occurring toxins, although they generally are not hazards of concern in the predominant species used in aquaculture.
