CIFTA

Inter-American Convention against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives and Other Related Materials
Approved during the First Plenary Session held on November 13, 1997

The region was the first in adopting in 1997 a regional instrument for the control of the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms: the Inter-American Convention against the Illicit Manufacturing and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives and Other Related Materials (CIFTA)

The CIFTA emphasizes the need for authorizations or licenses of export, imports and transit; the reinforcement of control at points of exports, amongst other things.  The Convention thus seeks to promote and facilitate the cooperation and exchange of information and experiences between States.

The Convention established a Consultative Committee constituted by a representative for each State Partie in order to guarantee its implementation, to promote the exchange of information, to facilitate cooperation and to foster training between States.
