The UN Department for Disarmament Affairs (UNDDA), which is the administrator and manager of the Register for the UN, was referred to in the early days as a post office, since it played no role other than to receive replies from states and print them in an annual report.
For example, the recommendation in their August 2003 report to change the definition of several categories of weapons gave more support to UNDDA and applauded the growth in participation.
UNDDA and key supporting states have conducted workshops on the Register, which to date have been concerned mainly with expanding participation in the Register as a political act in support of transparency and are restricted to the mechanics of participation.
