A shopping trolly full or weapons

The Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual Use Goods and Technologies was established in 1995, to control transfers of conventional weapons and defence and dual-use goods and technologies.

The Arrangement aims to promote transparency, exchange of information, and greater responsibility in preventing destabilising accumulations of advanced conventional weapons and dual-use technologies.

Since December 2001, the WA has pursued as one of its purposes the prevention of weapons proliferation to terrorist groups.
