Preparedness of countries and systems to respond to BA threats, including small and less developed or developing countries is important contribution to regional and global capacity building. Contribution of the Republic of Macedonia is expressed as a state party of International conventions and agreements against proliferation of weapons for mass destruction (nuclear, chemical and biological).The Republic of Macedonia is a state party also to BTWC Biological Toxin Weapons Convention. Legislation and regulations based on international obligations have been implemented through adopting number of laws regarding control and measures on BA. Plans for preparedness & responses and responsible institutions are defined.
