Offers/Requests of Assistance
Thailand has officially requested assistance through the 1540 Committee, noting that "Thailand welcomes international support and assistance to help develop more effective national export, transit and transshipments controls over WMD, their means of delivery and related dual use items." Further Thailand has requested "advice from experts on identification of WMD-related materials and dual use items," as well as "training courses and workshop to exchange views and experience on how to effectively detect, deter, prevent and combat the transport of illicit WMD and related materials as well as trafficking and brokering which is consistent with international law." In December 2011, Thailand and the United States co-chaired the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) Workshop on Nonproliferation Nuclear Forensics in Bangkok. In 2012, Thailand is in the process of establishing a nuclear forensic center. Thailand has a Megaports Initiative port in Laem Chabang.
In 2012, Bangkok hosted a workshop on Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN) and Maritime Terrorism" for ASEAN countries, organized by the Terrorism Prevention Branch of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) with the financial support of the Government of Japan.
