We describe the (2 x 800 kg) emulsion target in the CHORUS hybrid detector set-up for the search of nu(mu) --> nu(tau) oscillations. together with the CERN pouring and processing facilities (upgraded for this purpose), and the techniques employed to treat the emulsions used as the active target in the experiment.
