Marking, Record Keeping and Tracing
The marking, record keeping and tracing of fire arms is not provided for in our law. Although the Ghana Armed Forces and the Ghana Police Service and other security service organisations have some guidelines governing the marking on the weapons that they import, this is not a requirement in our law.
For instance, there is no law that requires a weapon imported into Ghana to have the name or brand of manufacturer, name or code of country, caliber, and serial number, year of manufacture, printing depths and unique organisation's initial or logo. These requirements would be considered in the review process.
