VERIFY™ – the standard reference database for chemical disarmament is now available for qualified researchers and institutions

VERIFY is the official analytical reference database used by Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which implements the provisions of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC).

VERIFY is one of the key tools helping CWC signatory nations, National Authorities, and related research institutions enforce the Convention. VERIFY helps implement the CWC, ensure compliance with the CWC, and streamline inspection and verification activities.

The system includes full information on over 1900 relevant chemicals and provides easy access to detailed analytical reference data. It contains synonyms, chemical and physical basic data on chemicals as well as their mass spectrometric, IR spectrometric, NMR spectrometric and chromatographic data.

VERIFY offers the following features and benefits for the users:

  • An extensive catalogue of compounds covered by the CWC
  • Wide selection of structural, physical, spectral, and chemical properties on all compounds
  • Unmatched search and query capabilities
