The CBRN environment includes CBRN threats and hazards present and their potential effects on operations. These effects can be created through the intentional or unintentional release of CBRN materials in the operational environment (OE). Operations in CBRN environments are conducted using specific policies and procedures to minimize or negate CBRN threats and hazards. Such operations may require the employment of strategic and operational capabilities.

CBRN hazards are CBRN materials that could create adverse effects if released or disseminated accidentally, deliberately, or even naturally.
