Study - EU preparedness and responses to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threats - PE 653.645 - Subcommittee on Security and Defence

ven, 16/07/2021 - 00:00
This study on ‘EU preparedness and responses to Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) threats’ was requested by the European Parliament’s (EP) Subcommittee on Security and Defence (SEDE) in the context of, but not limited to, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Building on reports and expert input, this study first provides an update of the current level of each of the C, B, R and N threat elements, including the type of actor from which such threats might stem. It furthermore takes stock of the existing preparedness and response mechanisms and matches these against the updated threat landscape to determine the current state of play of the EU’s response tools and its remaining gaps where improvement may be needed. The study puts forward a number of recommendations on specific issues. The core of the recommendations builds on using a ‘Team Europe’ approach to create and maintain a strong task force based response capacity, with additional authority and competence given by EU Member States to the EU. This would enable the EU to better support and manage an EU-wide crisis response in the CBRN field in a timely and effective manner.

The Subcommittee on Human Rights will discuss the cooperative financing mechanism agreement reached between the European Defence Agency and the European Investment Bank, with EIB Vice-President Kris Peeters, on 12 July. Since the current rules do not allow the EIB to finance purely military projects or infrastructure, the agreement has the same ambition as the European Development Fund (EDF) and the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO).
