"In recent years, the United Nations system has been successful in setting technical standards in specific thematic areas, such as mine action and disarmament, demobilization and reintegration. In the same vein, the Coordinating Action on Small Arms mechanism has embarked on a project to develop international small arms control standards: a set of internationally accepted and validated technical standards that provide comprehensive guidance to practitioners and policymakers on legal, policy and operational issues surrounding small arms control. The project envisages the completion of a set of standards by the Fourth Biennial Meeting of States to Consider the Implementation of the Programme of Action, scheduled for June 2010.”
