Lois, réglementations et procédures administratives

La législation actuelle de la principauté d'Andorre sur les armes repose d'une part sur le Decret dels MI Srs. Veguers sobre possessió, ús i circulació d'armes du 03/07/1989 (Décret sur la possession, l'utilisation et la circulation d'armes), et d'autre part sur le Code Pénal de 2005 qui consacre le chapitre III au port, au trafic et au dépôt d'armes, de leurs munitions et des explosifs. Le Décret et le Code Pénal de l'Andorre forment l'instrument administratif et juridique qui garantit un contrôle précis sur la matière. Le susmentionné Décret est en grande partie similaire à la législation appliquée en Espagne et en France en la matière.

Laws, Regulations and Administrative Procedures

The current Andorran arms legislation is based partly on the Decree on the Possession, Use and Transport of Weapons of 3 July 1989, and partly on the 2005 Penal Code, Chapter 3 of which addresses the carrying of, trafficking in and storage of weapons, ammunition and explosives. The Decree and the Andorran Penal Code constitute the administrative and legal framework ensuring that the sector is closely regulated. The Decree is to a great extent similar to the relevant legislation in force in Spain and in France.
