Kenya does not have legislation on arms brokering. However, the policy on SALW, makes provisions to ensure regulatory controls on all brokering activities of SALW, ammunition and related material, as defined in relation to individuals and institutions registered or incorporated in the Republic of Kenya; regulatory requirements for authorisation and licensing as broker; regulations for maintaining a database of all brokers; regulations on brokering transaction, including permit for every individual brokering transaction, irrespective of the source and destination of the SALW, ammunition and/or related material, and irrespective of whether the SALW, ammunition and/or related material will touch Kenyan territory and legislative penalties for unlicensed brokerage.
All arms brokers will be required to register with the Central Firearms Bureau (CFB) and all transactions will be licensed.
Kenya has undertaken and finalized an assessment on arms brokers and it has been established that there are no brokers but dealers who are all registered and licensed.
[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
