Module 6 – Export Risk Criteria

This module explains the criteria set out in Article 7(1) and 7(4) of the Arms Trade Treaty for a State Party to assess the risks of an export of conventional arms and/or related items if it were to be authorised. Another module on Article 7 outlines the elements of export systems and the specific procedures under the Treaty for deciding if an export must not be authorised because it poses an ‘overriding risk’ of ‘negative consequences’.

If the export is not prohibited, an effective risk assessment must be done.
