"While there is no internationally agreed definition of ‘stockpile man- agement’ with respect to small arms and light weapons, the International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS) describes the term as follows:

Stockpile management of weapons is the term used to describe those procedures and activities that are necessary for the safe and secure accounting, storage, transporta- tion and handling of small arms and light weapons. […]  

“Since the commitment extends to the stockpile management of small arms and light weapons and ammunition, the international standards that are of relevance include the ISACS and IATG.”
