Marquage Individuelle (Numérotage)

L'Arrêté Royal du 20 septembre 1991 pose:

'Les personnes agréées tiennent: 1° un registre conforme au modèle A figurant en annexe où elles inscrivent les (armes à feu soumises à autorisation) qu'elles acquièrent, fabriquent, détiennent ou cèdent;'[art. 23]

Ce qui implique (entre autres) que les fabricants qui produisent des armes pour l'exportation doivent organiser leur propre registre qui inclut les marquages individuels des armes.
