Lois, réglementations et procédures administratives

Le Bénin n'étant pas un pays fabricant d'armes perfectionnées, toute arme non marquée ou insuffisamment marquée est considérée comme une arme de traite, donc illicite.

Deux nouvelles lois en cours d'élaboration prendront en compte cette rubrique.

Les différentes législations, réglementations et procédures nationales sont régulièrement rendues publiques par le Journal Officiel, les médias, les séances d'éducation et de sensibilisation qu'organisent les Forces de Sécurité Publique.

Laws, Regulations and Administrative Procedures

Benin not being a country that manufactures sophisticated firearms, any unmarked or insufficiently marked firearm is considered as a slave trade firearm [craft weapon, or weapon for exchange], and thus illegal.

Two new laws being elaborated will take into account this category.

The different laws, regulations and national procedures are regularly published by the Official Journal, the media, educational and awareness-raising sessions organised by the Public Security Forces.
