Within the framework of the EU Council Decision 2015/2309 on the promotion of effective arms export controls, the implementing organisation, BAFA organized the second Regional Workshop for South East European countries in Skopje, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia on 26-27 April 2017.

The aim of the workshop was to provide partner countries a platform to meet and discuss recent developments concerning export controls of conventional arms with their counterparts of neighbouring countries and EU member states. EU colleagues informed on recent updates of the EU policy and provided an overview on the state of international conventions and agreements such as the ATT and the Wassenaar Arangement.

Throughout the workshop participants and experts engaged in interesting discussions on risk assessment from both licensing and customs perspective. The second day started with an interesting discussion on arms diversion in South East Europe and ended with a session on import marking, chaired by a representative of UNDP-SEESAC.

In Skopje the implementer was supported by experts from Croatia, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy and UNDP SEESAC.
