In July 2009, SEESAC achieved a major breakthrough by securing the political support for the development of a Regional Report on Arms Exports. Governments of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, and Serbia all agreed to jointly publish their arms exports data. In 2012, they were joined by Croatia. The latest Regional Arms Export Reports 2015, 2016 contain information on conventional arms exports of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
The report on arms exports is intended to help consolidate the gains in transparency that have already been made in the region, while also demonstrating an ability and willingness by the countries to uphold the commitments associated with the Council Common Position 2008/944/CFSP defining common rules governing control of exports of military technology and equipment.
In the world today, the only similar joint regional publication of this kind is the one published by the European Union.
