Module 5 – Prohibited Transfers: Preventing International Crimes

This is a self-learning module on other core elements of the Arms Trade Treaty. These are the obligations contained in Article 6(3) applicable to all States Parties.

In order to prevent a State Party aiding the commission of international crimes, this provision in Article 6 sets out a number of defined circumstances in which a State Party must prohibit in its jurisdiction the authorisation of a specific transfer to another State of conventional arms or related ammunition/munitions or parts and components capable of assembly into a conventional weapon.

This module relates closely to another module on Article 6 in this series entitled Prohibited Transfers – Implementing Existing Treaty Obligations that addresses Articles 6(1) and 6(2) of the Treaty.
