United States views the Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) as serving an important function in the BWC.
The United States has consistently provided annual submissions. Since 1986, the U.S. CBMs submission has been available to all States Parties; since 2006 it has been posted on the password-protected side of the BWC Implementation Support Unit (ISU) website, and starting in 2010 it has been posted on the publicly accessible side of the ISU website. Every year the United States makes its best effort to ensure that the CBM report is complete and accurate. The United States is committed to an ongoing effort to improve our annual Report and data collection/submission process.
