Collection and Disposal of Surplus Small Weapons and Light Weapons
Collection and disposal of surplus small weapons and light weapons (and other weapons and ammunition) in Croatian MOD is a regular continuous task. It is closely linked to the process of development and reorganization of Armed Forces.
Within the Armed Forces of the Republic of Croatia there is procedure for disposal of surplus stocks of small arms and light weapons, as well as ammunition. The General Staff of the Croatian Armed Forces will determine, based on continuous analysis of the required types and quantities of weapons and ammunition, what surplus or obsolete stocks exist, and will propose the means of their disposal. The Minister of Defense will decide on this proposal. The Minister's decision must be based on the Regulation on Sales of Obsolete Weapons and Defense Equipment (Official Gazette 95/02). If surplus stocks are not to be sold on the market, they will be destroyed according to established procedure, using Armed Forces facilities.
The Ministry of the Interior established a Commission that is dealing with the collection, disposal and destruction of surplus stocks held by the police. Destruction of this surplus is done in blast furnace
