The UN Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) has produced an Implementation Toolkit to assist States in acceding to an implemeting the provisons of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT).  

On the important question of definitions—for example of “brokering,” “transit,” “transshipment”—the Toolkit draws on definitions provided in ISACS Module 01.20 (Glossary) and refers users to relevant ISACS modules for further guidance.  

ISACS Module 03.20 provides practical guidance on putting in place effective national controls over the international transfer of small arms and light weapons that is based in part on the new international law created by the ATT.
