Collection and Disposal
The Defence stocks and SALW are maintained at levels corresponding to the legitimate security requirements of the armed forces.
Modernisation of Defence SALW stocks goes hand in hand with SALW disposal, mainly taking place through destruction. As a result of this policy and practice, on a regular base no surpluses are identified within the Defence organisation.
The Police and other State authorities have similar regulations on management and security of their stocks.
[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
