The 18th MCJSB (Military Committee Joint Standardization Board) CBRN WG Doctrine and Terminology Panel (DTP) took place at the Defence CBRN Centre in Winterbourne Gunner, Salisbury, United Kingdom, from 14 to 17 May 2012.
32 delegates from 12 NATO and PfP nations (BEL, CAN, CZE, DNK, FRA, DEU, ITA, NLD, POL, SRB, GBR and USA), NATO ACO, IMS, SHAPE, ACT, ONTC, JAPCC, and the JCBRN Defence COE attended the meeting, with the aim to develop a common vision regarding the new approach in CBRN Defence, and set the basic DTP agreement for the follow on work on related doctrine development.
The meeting resulted in a number of fruitful discussions, triggered by the new draft of the NATO Comprehensive CBRN defence Concept, which was presented by the NATO IMS representative. In conjunction with the IMS, the DTP contributed to the development of the concept by reviewing the high level CBRN terms referred to within the updated version of the document. Additionally, the DTP reviewed a remarkable number of CBRN related terms, following all relevant NATO procedures, in accordance with ONTC standards.
