First Roadmap Activity in Cambodia


Event date: 07/02/2018 - 08/02/2018

The First Roadmap Activity for the Kingdom of Cambodia under the EU Arms Trade Treaty Outreach Project (ATT-OP II) took place on 7-8 February 2018 in Phnom Penh.

This two-day workshop followed an Initial visit conducted in September 2017 and was based upon the results of that first assessment seminar. The thematic alignment of this workshop encompassed the establishment of a risk assessment management system, inter-agency cooperation, record keeping and reporting under ATT.

The EU project implemented by BAFA brought together national ATT stakeholders from the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Cambodian Customs Authority.

The first day was dedicated to the establishment of a risk management system in Cambodia, a possible model structure for such a system and the division of responsibilities as well as methods to gather information for risk assessment.

On the first session of the second day, the team of experts presented an interactive case study for inter-agency cooperation and asked from the participants to clarify the routine procedures set by the Cambodian rules and regulations. The Cambodian side, led by the Ministry of Interior, explained in detail the legal stipulations and the standard procedures across different authorities when dealing with cross border smuggling cases.

The workshop ended with presentations on record keeping and reporting obligations under ATT. The participants were shown the exact wordings of the provisions in the ATT, the different possibilities to submit reports to the ATT Secretariat and details of the content of such a report.

Many of the topics of the workshop will be followed up in the next roadmap activity for Cambodia.
