Brokering

The Law on Trade and Laws amending the Law on Weapons. Every trading firm has to be registered in the trade register of the Ministry of Economy and an additional authorization has to be issued by the Ministry of the Interior.

As part of the process of gradual adoption and introduction of the CFSP acquis into the national legislation, the Government of the Republic of Macedonia at its session of 1 November 2004 adopted a Decision on Unilateral Acceptance of the European Code of Conduct on Arms Exports. In 2005 Macedonia acceded to the Common Position of the European Council No. 2003/468/CFSP of 23 June 2003 on the Control of Arms Brokering.

To further improve the legal basis and enhance the legal mechanisms for implementation of internationally accepted obligations for application of sanctions, including arms embargoes, at the end of 2005 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs initiated a procedure for amending relevant legislation in this domain and drafting a law on restrictive measures, including arms embargos (adopted and published in the Official Gazette RM, 36/07).

The specific legislation on brokering is being developed with the assistance of SEESAC.
