Module 8 – Regulating Imports

This Module forms part of a set of learning modules on the Arms Trade Treaty. It provides an overview of the rights, obligations, and suggested measures contained in various provisions of the Treaty that State Parties apply when importing conventional arms and related items covered by the Treaty.

Under Article 8 (Import) an importing State Party must take measures that will allow it to regulate, where necessary, imports under its jurisdiction of conventional arms. Moreover, under Article 6 (Prohibitions) each State Party must prohibit certain transfers, including certain imports. These measures are to be undertaken in concert with the exporting State, as required under Article 7 (Export and Export Assessment).
