This concluding chapter discusses the date of the adoption of the ATT, which was on 2 April 2013. The text of the draft ATT submitted to the UN General Assembly referred to the treaty being ‘done’ (i.e. adopted) on 28 March 2013—the final day of the United Nations Final Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty. It was subsequently amended in accordance with Operative Paragraph 2 of UN General Assembly Resolution 67/234B of 2 April 2013 to reflect the fact that adoption had not been possible on that date at the final diplomatic conference owing to the objections of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Iran, and Syria.
