“CASA’s flagship initiative at present is the development of International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS), which, when finalised, will enhance policymaking and programming on small arms across the UN system and provide comprehensive guidance to practitioners and policymakers. On the opening day of this meeting, at the ISACS side-event, Member States had the opportunity to consider the first tangible results of this undertaking. Over the coming months, the United Nations will conduct a broad-based consultation on all ISACS modules in order to shape, fine-tune and finalise them. Member States, as well as international and regional organisations, civil society and the small arms industry, are invited to contribute to this consultation by providing inputs from technical and policy experts.”
