Aus­tralia Group.

SP's LandForces - - NON- PROLIFERATION -

This group re­stricts trade in ma­te­ri­als used to make chem­i­cal and bi­o­log­i­cal weapons. It was formed in 1985 prompted by Iraq’s use of chem­i­cal weapons dur­ing the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) for plac­ing checks on de­vel­op­ment of chem­i­cal weapons; in­ter­na­tional ex­port con­trols on chem­i­cal weapons and pre­cur­sor chem­i­cals. Its fo­cus was sub­se­quently ex­panded to in­clude chem­i­cal pro­duc­tion equip­ment/tech­nolo­gies and mea­sures to pre­vent pro­lif­er­a­tion of bi­o­log­i­cal weapons.
