Marking (Marcaje)

La legislación peruana prevé normas para el marcaje de armas y municiones de uso civil fabricadas en territorio nacional, pero no existe normativa para el control del marcaje de las armas y municiones importadas. La DICSCAMEC es la autoridad peruana que tiene la responsabilidad del control de marcaje y actualmente solo exige que las armas importadas tengan un número que las identifique.

Está pendiente estandarizar el marcaje que deben tener las armas de guerra y sus municiones adquiridas por las Fuerzas Armadas y la Policía Nacional.

Sólo las armas de guerra adquiridas por las Fuerzas Armadas hasta los años 70 tienen el sello de la República del Perú y el nombre de la institución estamapdas en ellas; y las armas adquiridas en las últimas décadas solo disponen de números de serie, modelo, calibre y nombre del fabricante.

En el caso de la Policía Nacional, sólo las armas de fuego adquridas antes de la integración de las fuerzas ex-policiales llevan el escudo institucional.

Translated content:

Peruvian legislation provides for the marking of arms and ammunition produced on Peruvian territory for civilian use. However, there is currently no legislation in place with regard to the marking of imported firearms and ammunition. The Department for the Control of Security Services, Arms, Ammunition and Explosives for Civilian Use (DICSCAMEC) is the agency in charge of controlling marking procedures and it currently only requires that imported arms have an identifying number.

Standardised marking procedures for military weapons and ammunition bought by the Armed Forces and National Police are yet to be established.

The arms acquired by the Armed Forces before the 1970s have only been marked with the stamp of the Republic of Peru and the name of the institution. Those firearms bought in recent decades have only been marked with the serial number, model, calibre and manufacturer.

In the case of the National Police, only the firearms acquired before the integration of the police force have been marked with the institutional coat of arms.
