The concept of CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear) defence is a highly complex phenomenon and a scientific discipline within both the social and technical-technological sciences. CBRN defence has multiple meanings. In the most general sense, it refers to absence/elimination or minimization of threats, i.e. pressures that can threaten people, property, and the environment. Effective and efficient CBRN defence activities can be seen from the perspective of civil structures or armed forces. In this sense, the organizational structure of the armed forces of any country represents a dynamic system which, within the wider community, operates and exists under specific conditions and circumstances. Starting from its basic purposes, the regular armed forces of any state do not have unknowns regarding the rules and their core roles. However, the complex structure and the interdependence of different organizational structures within the country and within the armed forces have an impact on the implementation of measures in the field of CBRN defence and management of risk both in war and peacetime. The aim of this paper is to present the structural organization, resources and tasks of the Serbian armed forces (SAF) within the field of CBRN defence.
