The South African authorities also adopted strict policy measures and standing procedures to ensure effective management of all small arms and light weapons in possession of law enforcement agencies and armed forces. These measures include but is not limited to standardisation of small arms and light weapons in use, minimum training standards, physical security measures, unique marking of firearms and inventory management.
The domestic laws provide for specific strict sanctions for the negligent loss or theft of a small arm or light weapon, which includes the declaration such an owner is unfit to possess a firearm.
The Department of Defence is currently also in the process of streamlining its own firearms control system in a manner consistent with the requirements of the Firearms Control Act.
