Establishment of Accurate and Comprehensive Records for all Marked SALW

The State Arms Register collects data on all types of arms, possessed by the armed forces, police and other special forces, arms possessed by natural persons or legal entities, imported, exported and destroyed arms.

The Register contains information on the date of purchase (if the weapon is purchased by the Weaponry Fund); model, calibre, category, serial number; owner, ID number, address; history of transactions with an arm from its purchase to destruction.

Materiel Recourses Department of the Armed Forces is responsible for the gathering, analysis and record of information about all weapons used by Armed Forces. It systemises received data and annually provides this information to the National Weapons Register. Stocks held by armed forces are reviewed regularly to
ensure that they meet the requirements of ITI…

Data in the State Arms Register is kept until a particular firearm is destroyed and afterwards transferred to the archives, where it is kept for further 75 years.

[SALW = small arms and light weapons; ITI = International Tracing Instrument]
