International Ammunition Technical Guidelines

Effective ammunition stockpile management needs a ‘whole life management’ approach, ranging from categorization and accounting, to physical security, to surveillance and to recurrently assessing the stability and reliability of ammunition.

The International Ammunition Technical Guidelines (IATG) were developed in 2011 under the UN SaferGuard Programme.

All UN Member States have welcomed the completion of the IATG and the establishment of the UN SaferGuard Programme. States wishing to improve their national stockpile management capacity are encouraged by the General Assembly to contact the Programme.
