8. Brokering Administration
In accordance with the Regulations on the Administration of Arms Export, all arms export activities in China are carried out exclusively by specific companies that have been designated and authorized by the State.
Currently, the Chinese Government has authorized ten companies to engage in specified arms export activities, and only four of those are authorized to export firearms.
Engagement in arms export activities, including arms brokering, by any other entity or individual is illegal.
