Preventing Diversion: Tracking small arms with ArmsTracker

Weapons seized by HMAS Darwin from a small-arms smuggler in the Gulf of Oman - Royal Australian Navy

Since the adoption of the UN Programme of Action in 2001, record-keeping has been the most-requested category of international assistance. An effective record-keeping system is also a pre-requisite for other often-requested categories of assistance: stockpile management, transfer procedures and tracing. Despite this, an effective and affordable solution has eluded many States, Regions and donors.

The prevention of diversion requires a digital record-keeping system capable of following small arms through each transfer to final re-export, loss or destruction.  This solution must also enable easy reporting, identification and auditing of stockpiles.

State agencies with the fewest resources are now offered a low-cost, or a no-cost solution to enforce national laws and to observe regional and international commitments, in their own language.
