Export Controls

Under Senegalese law, no trade in arms may be conducted without the express authorisation of the Minister of the Interior.

Dealers and their places of business are duly identified and operate with licences from the Minister of the Interior to exercise their activity. They may sell weapons to only those individuals with a weapons permit.

The relevant administrative authority shall determine the quantities of arms that may be authorized to be held in stock. Each year, the Ministry of the Interior determines the quota of weapons to be imported and dealers may replenish their stock when a specific quantity of their stock as determined under the law has actually been sold (see Act No. 66-03 of 18 January 1966 and its implementing decree).

Weapons may transit through the territory of Senegal only when so authorized by the Minister of the Interior; such authorization should be sought through an exchange of correspondence prior to such transit.
