8. Marking, record-keeping and follow-up
(a) An important condition for follow-up purposes is the requirement that an identifying mark, the year of manufacture and the country of origin must be stamped on the weapon.
(b) All weapons manufactured after 1900 are deemed to be weapons to which the Weapons Act applies. Older weapons are considered antiques.
(c) There are preventive measures in place, including the registration of weapons with sufficient information to ensure that weapons can be identified. In our present situation, however, with a plethora of sources of weapons that has come to constitute a grave threat to the country, the Government of Iraq has endeavoured to eliminate as many weapons as possible.
