This report is the result of a research project funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and conducted during 1987/1988 as part of the research competition on arms control issues. After a brief introduction of verification as a 'trade-off', chapter 2 analyses in detail the verification issues as they were considered in the negotiations for a Chemical Weapons Convention, chapter 3 offers a risk analysis and chapter 4 a cost analysis and chapter 5 discusses and evaluates the results. The appendix offers an estimate of the number of companies to be controlled, a model computation and a 7 page bibliography.
