Requirements for Arms Dealers
To operate as a dealer, in any of those areas, prior authorization will have to be obtained, based on a check of the applicant's personal and professional integrity, a determination that the applicant has not previously been convicted of fraud, and fulfilment of the other requirements specified for each type of operation covered by these Regulations. In the case of legal entities, company managers will have to meet these requirements.
As set out in these Regulations, dealers must keep records of all firearms received and sold with information identifying each weapon, in particular the type, make, model, calibre and serial number, as well as the name and address of the supplier and purchaser. The Civil Guard Central Weapons and Explosives Office shall periodically monitor dealers' compliance with this obligation. Dealers shall keep these records for five years, even once their operations have been completed, and then submit them to the Civil Guard Central Weapons and Explosives Office.
