UNROCA, established in 1991, is the key international mechanism for official transparency on arms transfers. All UN member states are requested to report to UNROCA information on their exports and imports of seven categories of conventional weapons: (a) battle tanks, (b) armoured combat vehicles, (c) large-calibre artillery systems, (d) combat aircraft, (e) attack helicopters, (f) warships, and (g) missiles and missile launchers. States are also invited to submit information on their holdings and procurement from domestic producers of major conventional weapons as well as international transfers of SALW.
