4. National Marking, Record Keeping and Tracing of Stockpiles
As part of the UNPoA and ITI implementation in Uganda, a national Firearms Marking exercise is ongoing beginning with firearms under Uganda Police and Uganda Peoples Defense Forces. The exercise will soon roll out to include the other units of the Armed Forces.
It is envisaged that all legitimately held SALW will ultimately be marked for ease of identification, tracing and management.
The exercise is being conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Nairobi Protocol after acquiring two Electronic Marking Machines from the Regional Centre on Small Arms and Light Weapons (RECSA). The markings on the gun include RECSA Code, Country and Institution codes, and firearm serial number.
[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
