The Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) regulates the international trade in conventional arms, ranging from small arms to combat aircraft. The ATT aims to prevent and eradicate the illicit trade in conventional arms and prevent the diversion of arms. The ATT entered into force in December 2014, and, as of March 2017, 90 countries are parties to the ATT. Currently, the United States is not among them. The United States signed the ATT in September 2013, but, despite several efforts during the final months of the Obama administration, failed to ratify the treaty.
