In 2011, the United Nations released the first version of the International Ammunition Technical Guidelines (IATG) providing states with voluntary guidance on best practices and international standards in ammunition management to mitigate the risks of accidental explosions and diversion of ammunition. Two updates of the IATG have taken place since their initial release to reflect evolving ammunition stockpile management standards and practices. Version 2 and Version 3 were released in 2015 and 2021 respectively. The second issue of AMAT Insights provides a practical and detailed overview of the amendments made to Version 2 of the IATG, the rationale behind them, and their expected impact.
