  Introduction: International disarmament conventions lack necessary compliance and consistency by production and application of new generation weapons, shortly after their development. Also by emergence of new threats of microbial weapons, bioterrorism and development of new biological technologies, the necessity of revising the content of these conventions is felt. In this formative research, the stages of growth and development of biological weaponry studies, international laws and conventions on the prohibition of production, development and stockpiling of biological weapons is studied in an interdisciplinary setting and the necessity of revision and reform in these conventions is proposed.

Conclusion: Growth of biological sciences in current century has been very fast, but development of international laws on control of military and weaponry trends of this science has been under the influence of weaponry authorities and developed governments and with no explicit prohibition of the use of these weapons, has imposed restrictions on developing countries which want to achieve the peaceful aspects of biological agents. Production of sustainable aerosols resistant to identification and detection techniques, will inevitably lead to convention's content reform.
