Interdicted items destined for SSRC front companies included solid double-base propellant,  chemical protection gear,  brass discs used to produce artillery ammunition tubes,  and machinery used in the production of liquid propellants. The U.

The SSRC uses these entities to make weapon-related procurements, including sarin gas precursors. One the most active SSRC front companies, the Metallic Manufacturing Factory MMF , has issued at least two separate tenders for ammonium nitrate, which can be used as an oxidizer in missile propellants, and can also be used in explosives.

The partnership is dedicated to identifying and holding accountable entities that use or proliferate chemical weapons. It has set up a database drawn from national sanctions lists that provides the names of entities involved in chemical weapon use and proliferation.
The partnership currently consists of around 30 countries and international organizations, including the United States.
