Seizure, Disposal and Enforcement
The national legislation conforms to some of the provisions of the regional and international agreements:
- Provisions exist for the state authorities to seize and confiscate those small arms with respect to which a contravention of the provisions of the Act has been committed.
- Premises and possessions used to facilitate the contravention of the Act may also be confiscated.
- The licensing authorities may demand the production of licences for the possession of small arms and may inspect warehouse registers.
However, fundamental absences include:
- No provisions for the disposal or destruction of small arms.
- No controls relating to the re-activation of de-activated small arms.
