Paragraphs 56 to 58 of the International Code of Conduct lay out commitments concerning management of weapons while paragraph 60 to 62 concern the management of ammunition. What are the challenges private security companies face in putting these commitments into practice, and what are the challenges in verifying companies are complying with their commitments? Over the last nine months, with the support of the Swiss Government, the Small Arms Survey, in partnership with ICoCA has been investigating these questions. Join us for an informative session that will bring you up to speed on the findings of the research conducted, how these findings are being used to inform more detailed assessment of ICoCA Member and Affiliate companies. A panel discussion will follow the project presentation.
