Who We Are

Technical Committees | Legal & Legislative | Regulatory Affairs (SLARAC) | International | United Nations

United Nations

SAAMI is an accredited United Nations ECOSOC Non-Government Organization (NGO) with Consultative Status. For the last 25 years SAAMI has provided the UN with technical information related to SAAMI-member company products. The issues facing the UN are daunting and complex. Our goal is to be a technical resource for decision-makers. Since SAAMI has at its disposal the technical knowledge of the manufacturers of firearms and ammunition, we are in a unique position to provide factual and reality-based information.

We participate in meetings and discussions related to model regulations for transportation and storage (see SLARAC) as well as treaty negotiations related to small arms.
