Title: ●Amendments to the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations: Addition of Certain Families of "Schedule 1" Chemicals and Conforming Changes to Schedule 2 Mixture Requirements 

Consistent with recent decisions by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to add certain families of "Schedule 1" chemicals to Schedule 1A in the Annex on Chemicals to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), BIS is publishing this proposed rule to obtain public comments on the proposed addition of these chemicals to Supplement No. 1 to part 712 of the Chemical Weapons Convention Regulations (CWCR) (15 CFR parts 710-721).  In addition, this proposed rule seeks public comments on the proposed amendments to section 713.2 of the CWCR that address which mixtures containing Schedule 2 chemicals must be counted for purposes of the annual declaration requirements described in this section.
