The Mapping Report is available for download!

The “Mapping Report” identifies and analyses the Italian and – in a comparative perspective – other 10 EU Member States’ Institutional and legal framework governing the response to CBRN emergencies or crises affecting their territory. To a minor extent, it also maps the technical-operational procedures and practices adopted by national law enforcement authorities, incident commanders and other first responders in dealing with these emergencies or crises.

Since the relevant Institutional, legal and operative framework in the surveyed States, or specific norms and procedures it consists of, have been established according to international obligations, the “Mapping Report” presents also a broad overview of these obligations and discusses how they have been implemented at domestic level – in particular, with regard to Italy.

As the very outcome, the Report presents the similarities and differences between the Institutional, legal and technical-operational approaches to CBRN events in the countries surveyed, as well as identifies potential gaps and best practices. It also proposes specific recommendations to be implemented by Italy in order to improve its overall CBRN response system. Some recommendations address also the EU established legal and cooperation framework dealing with response to CBRN emergencies or crises.

We do hope you will find the Report interesting and useful. Please feel free to contact us should you require any further information or have any feedback.
