United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission

The United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) is the arms-inspection group for Iraq. It is the successor to the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM), which was accused that CIA agents were using the access provided by UNSCOM for espionage.

It was created in 1999 "to disarm Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological weapons and missiles with a range of more than 150 km)".
