Export Controls and Brokering Controls
The restrictive attitude of Germany's export policy is reflected in the fact that military equipment represents only a minor proportion of the entirety of German exports. For example, exports of war weapons traditionally account for less than 0.5 % of all exports, and are mainly directed to countries which are members of NATO or of the OECD. This is particularly valid for SALW.
