The United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC) was created through the adoption of Security Council resolution 1284 of 17 December 1999. UNMOVIC was to replace the former UN Special Commission (UNSCOM) and continue with the latter’s mandate to disarm Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological weapons and missiles with a range of more than 150 km), and to operate a system of ongoing monitoring and verification to check Iraq’s compliance with its obligations not to reacquire the same weapons prohibited to it by the Security Council.

Organizational Plan for UNMOVIC (4630 words)
Given that the central task of UNMOVIC, like that of UNSCOM before it, is to verify that Iraq complies with the obligations set out by the Council, those obligations, too, are relevant for understanding the Commission's responsibilities and the demands that their fulfilment place on the organization.
The responsibilities of UNMOVIC, in connection with paragraphs 8 and 9 of resolution 687 (1991), are generally referred to, in resolution 1284 (1999), as "disarmament tasks", while the responsibilities under paragraph 10 of resolution 687 (1991) relate to implementing the plan for ongoing monitoring and verification.
UNMOVIC is required, under paragraph 3 of resolution 1284 (1999), to furnish assistance and cooperation to IAEA in the performance by the latter of its responsibilities under the same paragraph.
