Module 10 – Regulating Brokering

This Module provides an overview of the obligations and suggested measures that State Parties of the Arms Trade Treaty take to regulate the brokering of conventional arms and related items.

Arms brokering is not defined in the Treaty but is generally understood as being the mediation and negotiation of transactions between buyers and sellers of conventional arms and can include the arrangement of contracts or essential services to facilitate those transactions and the delivery of the arms. Arms brokers may also engage in ‘closely associated activities’ such as the buying and selling of arms, and the arrangement of shipping, finance and other services to complete a transfer of arms.
