Six ASEAN countries keep national arms registers, of which four are computerized.
National registers are essential to keep track of licensed ownership, production, and trade, and are especially useful for tracing confiscated illicit weapons to their point of origin.
Registers should be comprehensive and easily accessible. Brunei keeps a computerised national register of all licences issued (UN, 1999c).
