Implementation of the International Tracing Instrument

(i) All small arms and light weapons in the possession of and intended for use by the armed forces and security forces of the State are marked and inventoried.

(ii) Small arms and light weapons manufacturers have taken measures to prevent the removal or alteration of their markings in order to avoid imports and/or copying that might tarnish the manufacturer's reputation.

(iii) The General National Mobilization Directorate maintains a national arms register, in which it records the identifying characteristics of the weapon (type of marking, serial number, calibre, number of barrels, position of barrels, use of the weapon, among others) and of its owner. Small arms and light weapons used by the armed forces and security forces are not included in this register, since private citizens do not have access to such weapons, information on which is recorded in registers maintained by the institutions in question.
