EU ATT Outreach Project II - Second Roadmap Activity for Peru

Activity description

The Second Roadmap Activity for Peru took place in Lima, Peru, on 11-12 December 2019 in the framework of EU ATT OP II and was organised by the implementing entity BAFA. Peru has been a long-term partner within the EU ATT OP II since its first phase, back in 2014.

The activity was titled “Towards the establishment of a national control system, with special focus on experiences of the region of Latin America”. The main objective was to discuss the obligations of the ATT as well as best practices of implementation, with the aim to support and set new impulses for the ongoing implementation process in Peru. Further topics included the key requirements of the ATT regarding implementation, classification and typology of arms, establishment of a national control system and national control lists, the prevention of diversion as well as the role of customs in the implementation process of the ATT.

The workshop was attended by a total of 35 representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defence, SUCAMEC, National Police, National Intelligence Agency, Customs as well as the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights.

The activity was supported by four international experts from Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Peru and Spain.

Project description

The goal of 'EU ATT Outreach Project (EU ATT-OP)', as part of the European Union Partner-to-Partner (EUP2P) Export Control Programme, is to support the effective implementation of the ATT. Upon request, the project will support a number of States in strengthening their arms transfer control systems with a view to being able to implement the ATT. The project also aims to increase awareness and ownership of the ATT at national and regional levels and therein contribute to its universalisation. A second edition of the project was initiated on 29 May 2017 by Council Decision 2017/915 and it is co-implemented by BAFA and Expertise France.The EU ATT Outreach Project has three different components: 1) Tailored National Assistance Programmes; 2) Ad-hoc Activities; and 3) Regional Seminars.
