Regional Reports on Arms Exports

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 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.
