Regular exercises are conducted to review arms stocks and determine the need for disposal. Stocks that are disposed are stocks that have become ineffective. Ineffective stocks are then destroyed according to a standard operating procedure.

With due observance given to the methods and procedures outlined above, all confiscated, seized or collected SALW are destroyed. The standard means of disposal is by melting the arms.
