Since the struggle for independence, Eritrea has developed a very clear and
reliable record keeping system, although it is manual and documents kept in hard copy.
Presently, all Eritrean armed forces and law enforcement agencies have their own uniform record keeping system. Each organ periodically reviews the SALW in its possession and submits monthly reports to the National Staff of Ordnance of the Ministry of Defense, which is responsible for SALW Stockpile Management. But there is need for technical and financial assistance from concerned regional and international organizations to change the exhaustive manual activities into electronic and modern way of record keeping.
