A-8. Brokering:

Algerian legislation provides for the state monopoly concerning the trade of arms and ammunition.

Section 8 of Ordinance No. 97-06 of 21 January 1997 on military equipment, weapons and ammunition, provides: "the Ministry of National Defence shall, on behalf of the State, have the monopoly and control on the manufacture, import and export of arms and ammunition of the first, second and third categories."

Thus, no brokering activity in the sale of weapons is envisaged under Algerian law.

However, any sale of prohibited weapons or ammunition without authorisation from the competent authority is punishable under the Penal Code.
