2.0 Implementation of the International Tracing Instrument

It is important to note that Kenya already has in place a Central Firearms Bureau (CFB) which currently maintains a register of all SALW in licensed civilian possession. The approval of the policy will facilitate the upgrading of the Central Firearms Bureau in maintaining an electronic database of all state owned SALW.

The following minimum information will be included in the register:-
a. The state department under whose control the firearm is, or in whose safekeeping or legal possession the firearms are stored.
b. The type of firearm, specification, make, model, serial number, calibre and any other markings such as engravings, proof marks, country identity marks and other markers on the firearm that can assist in its identification.
c. Particulars of the movement, transfer, sale and destruction of the SALW within 30 days of such action.

The Draft National Policy on Small Arms and Light Weapons once approved will inform review of Legislation, Regulations and Administrative Procedures hence ensure the effective implementation of the International Tracing Instrument.

[SALW = small arms and light weapons]
