Practice Relating to Rule 74. Chemical Weapons
Slovenia’s National Assembly passed a Chemical Weapons Law through a fast-track procedure in 1999.
At the Fifth Conference of States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention in 2000, Slovenia stated:
In 1999 Slovenia adopted the Penal Code which regulates punishment for offences connected with violations of the Convention on Chemical Weapons and the Law on Chemical Weapons, which stipulates the obligations, interdictions and restrictions regarding chemical weapons in line with the Convention and lays down the basis for adoption of regulations by which this matter will be finally dealt on a legal basis in Slovenia. To Slovenia, as a country which has never had chemical weapons, the Convention on Chemical Weapons is of great importance.
