Introdoction. Islamic Republic of Iran was frequently attacked by Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA) during IraqIran war. Today and after 15 to 20 years of exposure many injured patients are constantly suffering from long-term effects of these agents. But nowadays danger of chemical terrorism and also bioterrorism are not merely related to war time and most communities are liable to such threats. In this regard OPCW conducts several educational programs for physicians and specific relief agents of the associated countries each year. Ukraine maneuver, from 2005/10/8 until 2005/10/13, was the second medical and non-medical chemical defense conducted by OPCW in collaboration with NATO members. Iranian chemical defense team, member of International chemical injured treatment and education station, has participated very actively in this maneuver.
Methods. Current study has performed according to scientific issues about acute and chronic complications due to chemical warfare’s’, managements protocols and challenging with chemical attacks, prevention methods and treatment of injured patients and also triage and structure of chemical emergency and obtain experiences from 8 years war of Iraq against Iran and also participation in national and international chemical maneuvers with an analytic view to different medical, operational and technical aspects of chemical maneuver in Ukrain with participation of all the NATO countries, we would compared it with Iranian national maneuver
Results. We could define several weaknesses and strengths of our anti-biochemical training programs. We have also designed a sketch for future collaboration with other countries in an international level to respond properly in case of biochemical accidents. 
Discussion. Although we have experienced valuable results during chemical war Iraq against Iran, but if we don’t publish these experiences about management of chemical veterans and don’t education them, they would be forgotten. Nowadays world has a lot of worries about terrorist chemical attacks and education of prevention and medical aspects is an issue of importance and also publishing and educating of such findings would result increasing in self esteem about our scientific practical, technical and tactical knowledge if accompanied with using experiences of other countries to repair our defects.
