SIPRI Good Practice Guide: The Transport Sector as Counterproliferation Partner no. 5

Publisher: SIPRI
September, 2016

The SIPRI Good Practice Guides on the transport sector as counterproliferation partner have been developed to support partnerships between the transport sector and government authorities to counter proliferation and to implement proliferation-related United Nations Security Council resolutions. The series identifies and explores various aspects of the transport sector as a counterproliferation partner, with the aim of strengthening the sector’s contribution in this area.

This guide pays specific attention to how lessons from export control-related internal compliance programmes can contribute more broadly to the transport sector’s efforts to counter proliferation-related activity. It demonstrates how export control-related internal compliance programmes can be applied within the transport sector to increase its growing counterproliferation good practices.
