National Report 2008 - Marking and Tracing

Measures have been taken for the marking of all legally held weapons in Burundi. Two Burundian officials (one from the Army and the other from the National Police),…, will be trained in the tracing of firearms…

At the end of the training course, marking equipment comprising machines and computers for computerization of data will be presented and a basic data management system will be set up.

After the training has been completed, the trainees will in their turn train people to assist them and will thereafter be able to mark all weapons as specified in the Nairobi Protocol, in particular in article 7 (a), (b) and (c).

This is of particular importance now that Burundi holds the chairmanship of RECSA (Regional Center on Small Arms) for a period of two years.
