The event will kick start with a live capability demonstration by the Malaysian Armed Forces and civil responders and will host the famous NCT Networking Reception. Program themes are based off the most relevant topics in the region such as Capabilities for an Effective CBRNe Response, Medical Preparedness for CBRNe events, Best Practices in Countering IEDs and The Threats of Landmines and UXOs.

Join us for the must-attend CBRNe, C-IED and EOD event in Asia of 2019, and get insight into the latest, relevant state-of-the-art technologies!

Malaysia is one of the most developed countries in Southeast Asia when it comes to CBRNe. In the wake of the assassination of Kim Jong-nam at Kuala Lumpur International Airport using the highly-lethal VX nerve agent, Malaysian authorities have been on high alert regarding future CBRNe threats. Furthermore, the theft of a radioactive device containing Iridium-192 from the back of a pick-up truck has only highlighted the importance of raising CBRNe awareness in the region. Whilst Malaysia has well trained personnel and experts in both the military and civil spheres, it remains imperative that we discuss and share knowledge on the constantly evolving CBRNe threat and how we may prevent as well as respond to them through international cooperation.
