The UK’s Strategy for countering the use of CBRN by terrorists

The aim of our counter terrorist CBRN work is to stop a CBRN attack and where that is not possible, to put in place measures to ensure that we can recover from it quickly and with minimal loss of life. In common with CONTEST in general we therefore seek to reduce the likelihood and impact of attacks and by both means to reduce the risk to this country.

This strategy also describes some of the significant progress which we have made in countering this threat and highlights work which we plan to do over the next three years. It rightly emphasises work with our international and private sector partners and the important contribution of scientific research and the innovative use of technology. This reflects principles set out in our CONTEST Science and Technology strategy, also published last year.
