As per the ‘Chemical Weapons (Prohibition) Act, 2006’, all factories/industries involved with activities related to schedule chemicals and production with ‘Discrete Organic Chemicals’ must be enrolled with BNACWC. The purpose is to monitor the chemical-related activities in Bangladesh and ensure better chemical safety and security management. BNACWC periodically conducts a licensing meeting to enroll factories to BNACWC. BNACWC has a permanent Licensing Committee comprised of six members from different ministries and organizations led by the Member Secretary of BNACWC. On 18 March 2021, Licensing Meeting of BANCWC was held at AFD and the committee approved renewal certificate for eight companies and an enrollment certificate for one new company.
