EXPORT CONTROL: POST-SHIPMENT ON-SITE INSPECTIONS AND STOCKPILE MANAGEMENT ASSISTANCE

One of 2 publications from SIPRI on 17 August, this is concerned with post-shipment on-site inspections and international assistance in physical security and stockpile management (PSSM) of exported material.  On-site inspections allow exporting states to check exported military materiel to ensure that the importer is complying with its commitments, while PSSM assistance aims to improve states’ weapons and ammunition management systems. However, both instruments allow foreign specialists to visit a state’s weapons and ammunition storage facilities and enable information gathering to assess their integrity and identify possible diversion risks.  The Policy Brief highlights how building informal linkages between these instruments could contribute towards establishing more comprehensive forms of post-shipment cooperation.
