En los informes respectivos, deberá usarse la nomenclatura original y la medida del fabricante, sea en milésimas de pulgadas o en milímetros. Además, el Departamento pedirá, a las dependencias judiciales, una certificación de los antecedentes penales del petente o, si se trata de personas jurídicas, de quien las represente.

Article 34. Intervention of the Department

The Arms and Explosives Control Department will not register any firearm if the ballistic test has not been done before selling or trading it. The same applies when trying to transfer an already registered arm.

In the reports it is necessary to include the original nomenclature and the manufacturer's calibre, either in inches or millimeters. In addition, the Department will request of the judiciary, a certificate of criminal records of the applicant or in the case of a legal entity, the certificate of criminal records of its representative.
