This Treaty shall apply to all international transfers of conventional arms, hereafter referred to as "transfer," defined as: "the physical movement of conventional arms into or from national territory, and which includes the transfer of title or control over the conventional alms." 2. A transfer does not include the movement of conventional arms and related items by a State Party to its armed forces or law enforcement agencies stationed abroad or to support internationally mandated peacekeeping operations, such as those mandated by the United Nations. However, if the conventional arms will remain abroad, this constitutes a transfer and is thus regulated under the scope of this Treaty. 3. State Parties shall establish national legislation, regulations and administrative procedures, as appropriate, for transfers under the scope of this Treaty, including: a. Import (physical movement into the territory under a State's jurisdiction or control) b. Export (physical movement out of the territory under a State's jurisdiction or control) c. Transit and Transhipment (physical passage across the territory of a State with or without warehousing or change in mode of transportation, as part of a complete journey) d. Brokering (bringing together relevant parties and arranging or facilitating a potential transaction of conventional arms in return for some form of benefit, whether financial or otherwise)
