Stockpile Management and Security (Gestion et Sécurisation des Stocks)

L'O.L. (Ordonnance-Loi) de 1985 ne traite ni du stockage sécurisé des ALPC (Armes Légères et Petit Calibre) en général ni de celui détenu par les forces de sécurité. Il existe des dispositions sur le stockage d'armes par les marchands d'armes (voir ordonnance N°85-212 du 3 sept 1985 portant mesures d'exécution de l'O.L. N°85-035 du 3 sept 1985 portant régime général des armes et munitions (article 14).

Les textes législatifs existants à ce jour ne définissent pas de manière satisfaisante les critères techniques à appliquer pour la gestion sécurisée des stocks d'armes et de munitions.


[Translation by]

The Ordinance-Law (OL) of 1985 does not address the safe storage of SALW (Small Arms and Light Weapons) in general or those held by the security forces.

There are provisions on the storage of firearms by the arms dealers (see Ordinance No 85-212 of September 3, 1985, on implementing measures of Ordinance-Law No. 85-035 of September 3, 1985, on the regime of firearms and ammunition (Article 14)).

Existing legislation to date does not adequately define the technical criteria to be applied for the safe management of stockpiles of firearms and ammunition.
