UNROCA is the key international mechanism of official transparency on arms transfers. Established in 1991, it requests all UN member states to report information about the export and import of seven categories of conventional weapons.2 While UNROCA has made a significant contribution to greater public transparency in this area, a number of factors limit its utility, including incomplete submissions or non-submissions by certain states, discrepancies between different states’ reports and the limited coverage of the reporting categories.3
