Confidence-Building Measure C


UK policy is that basic research in biosciences, and particularly that related to the Convention, should generally be unclassified and applied research is also unclassified to the extent possible without infringing on national and commercial interests.

It is UK policy to encourage research scientists funded by the Government to publish the results of their work in scientific journals readily available to the scientific community. This applies to the publication of the results of research carried out in the research centres and laboratories subject to exchange of information under Confidence Building Measure A.

Insofar as publication of research on outbreaks of diseases covered by Confidence Building Measure B is concerned again it is UK policy to encourage research scientists funded by the Government to publish the results of their studies.
