2. Legislation, regulations and administrative measures

(a) Existing legislation, regulations and administrative measures on the exercise of effective control of small arms and light weapons and the regulation of their use, the most important statute being the Weapons Act, Law No. 13 of 1992.

(b) Existing national provisions aimed at preventing the manufacture of small arms and light weapons that are unmarked or inadequately marked. As noted above, under Iraqi law, controls and regulations on weapons have been put in place. Various laws have been amended to bring them into line with current needs and requirements. The accumulation and storage process is being implemented in accordance with official procedures, including entry, registration at storage facilities, and protection of stored weapons from damage and destruction. It is thus clear that Iraq has official measures in place.

(c) Legal measures in the Republic of Iraq are guaranteed by statute, including the Weapons Act, supplemented by orders and directives issued by the civilian governor of Iraq after 9 April 2003.
