Small Arms Survey reveals: Switzerland most transparent arms exporter in 2015

The 2018 edition of the Small Arms Trade Transparency Barometer—analyzing the transparency of the authorized small arms trade in 2015—identifies, in descending order, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Serbia as the most transparent exporters for 2015. The least transparent exporters for 2015 are, in ascending order, Iran, North Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Israel.

The analysis is based on reporting on small arms trade activities by 49 countries that exported at least USD 10 million worth of small arms and light weapons, including their parts, accessories, and ammunition, during any calendar year from 2001 to 2015. For the first time since its inception in 2003, the Barometer also assesses Arms Trade Treaty and UN Programme of Action reports to determine levels of transparency.
