The government's response plan to nuclear, radiological, biological or chemical (NRBC) threats and acts of terrorism is the result of inter-ministerial work involving mainly the ministries responsible for defence, the interior and health.
As soon as the nature of the act is confirmed, the plan is activated with:
- Its Biotox component for the biological threat,
- Its Piratox component for the chemical threat,
- Its Piratome component for the nuclear and radiological threat.
