Title: International Chemical Threat Reduction (ICTR) at Sandia National Laboratories

Abstract: ICTR enhances United States and interna­tional security by reducing chemical threats world­wide. It collaborates with partner governments, national and international chemical organizations, universities, and chemical professionals to protect against the accidental or intentional misuse of chem­icals. Working cooperatively, ICTR raises awareness of chemical safety and security, builds capacity for sustainable improvements in global chemical risk management, and counters the threats posed by dual-use chemicals.
