Section 7: Marking and Record Keeping
14. Does your country take measures to ensure that all SALW in the possession of government armed and security forces for their own use are duly marked? YES…
16. Does your country have standards and procedures related to keeping of records for all marked SALW in its territory?
16.1. What records relating to SALW are kept by the State (e.g. manufacturing, brokering, import and export licences granted, sales to other States, SALW held by State agencies such as the armed forces etc)?
Department for Export Controls-ANCEX created in 2006 the "Register of SALW Transfers" for SALW exported and imported, that includes data regarding the exporter, the importer/buyer, type, model, caliber, serial number, delivery dates and other relevant information.
16.2. How long does the government keep such records?
Department for Export Controls-ANCEX archives the records for 20 years. The main law stipulates the maintenance of manufacturing records for at least 30 years (for manufacturers) and all other records, including records of import and export, for at least 20 years (exporters and importers).
