Abstract

The foundation of disarmament inspections is the declaration of weapons capabilities and of activities with dual-use purposes. The information submitted is crucial for effective verification, but it does not exist in a vacuum. Its accuracy and completeness cannot be guaranteed irrespective of the goodwill of submitting States, but needs to be checked against the totality of available information assembled from other sources, including existing data banks, media sources and future inspections.
