International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS)

United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR)

In cooperation with partners worldwide, UNIDIR has launched the International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS) website as part of the United Nations Coordinating Action on Small Arms (UN CASA). ISACS provides guidance to practitioners and policymakers on fundamental aspects of SALW control and is used by more than 20 UN entities. The standards include for example a glossary of terms, definitions and abbreviations, a survey guide, and other practical instructions concerning stockpile management, marking and record keeping, tracing illicit weapons, destructions and border controls. Most of the instructions are available in English and French.
