For example, in 1997 the Inter-American Convention and subsequent development of Model Regulations for the Control of the International Movement of Firearms developed a control framework for export, import, and transit licensing and authorisation in the Americas region.

They include the following: • acting as arms brokers and transportation agents; • violating UN arms embargoes; • carrying out human-rights abuses and breaches of international humanitarian law, or facilitating such violations through training or equipping abusive forces; • driving the demand for small arms in communities by contributing to the militarisation of societies and the exacerbation of tensions in the regions in which they operate.
