Articles 9, 11-14

Presidential decree No. 769 of 24 August 2002 stipulates the procedure governing the maintenance of a State register of official and civilian weapons, and the procedure for the registration, storage, bearing, transportation, dispatching and proper use of official and civilian weapons, as well as the rules governing the legal entities of foreign nationals and stateless persons.

A list is maintained of official and civilian weapons and ammunition with a view to preventing their loss, theft, or non-authorized use while in circulation.

All weapons and ammunition, irrespective of model, type, source and acquisition, are included in the list (excluding cartridges for non-rifle hunting weapons used by legal entities).

A complete list of official and civilian weapons is maintained centrally by the Ministry of Internal Affairs based on information submitted to it and the registration of weapons and their ammunition.

Enterprises manufacturing official and civilian weapons and ammunition in accordance with the procedure established by law are obliged to keep a register of weapons and ammunition manufactured in an appropriate ledger, including the seal stamp and registration number, and to submit such information to the Ministry of Internal Affairs at least once a quarter.
