iTrace® is made possible through the generous support of the European Union and is overseen by the EU External Action Service. On 25 November 2013, by its Decision 2013/698/CFSP, the Council of the European Union designated CAR as technical implementing partner of the iTrace® Global Weapons Reporting System. Council Decisions 2015/1908/CFSP of 22 October 2015 and 2017/2283/CFSP of 11 December 2017 renewed the European Union’s commitment to iTrace®. The 2017 decision secured an additional 24 months’ worth of EU funding for the project, totalling EUR 3 474 322,77, with co-financing provided by the German Federal Foreign Office and CAR.
