Stockpile Management and Security

Federal Armed Forces:

Within the Federal Armed Forces, the security of SALW stocks is governed by the following regulations:
(i) "Guidelines Concerning the Infrastructure for Military Stockpile Facilities"
(ii) Federal Armed Forces Regulation 2/30 "Military Security"
(iii) Federal Army Regulation 110/100 "Military Security in the Army"

The documents referred to under (ii) and (iii) ascertain the methods for the organization and handling of, as well as procedures for, stocks, daily use and transportation of SALW. Additional regulations targeting local requirements as to achieve the requisite military security framework are also provided.

Federal and State Police Forces:

The security of SALW stocks held by federal and state police forces is governed by service regulations, effectively foreclosing any access of non-authorized persons. All police weaponry is centrally, and closely, registered in Federal Police and Federal Criminal Police Bureau records.

With regard to Federal Police Forces, a general Administrative Directive has been issued by the Federal Ministry of the Interior concerning the German Weapons Act (WaffVwV - BMI). Next to general provisions it contains rules concerning equipment, provisioning and administration as well as handling of weapons and ammunition.
