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 cooperation between the transport sector and customs as a means of securing the supply chain in relation to counterproliferation-related activity. It is aimed at supporting good practices both within the transport sector and between the sector and the relevant government authorities.
