The Office of Missile, Biological, and Chemical Nonproliferation leads working-level U.S. government efforts to impede, roll back, and eliminate the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons, missile delivery systems for weapons of mass destruction, and related equipment, materials, and technology. Accordingly, MBC leads departmental and interagency efforts to develop, integrate, coordinate, and implement bilateral and multilateral policies and programs to fight the proliferation of CBW and missiles capable of delivering WMD. The office works closely with National Security Staff and other agencies, including the Departments of Commerce, Defense, Energy, Homeland Security, Justice, Treasury, and the intelligence community in carrying out its mission. MBC leads U.S. participation in the Australia Group CBW nonproliferation regime, the Hague Code of Conduct Against Ballistic Missile Proliferation, and the Missile Technology Control Regime.
