In Terms of Marking:

The Executive Decree No 98-96 of March 18, 1998, amended and completed by the Executive Decree No 04-304 of September 13, 2004, on the implementation of the Ordinance No 97-06 of January 21, 1997, relating to weapons of war, firearms and ammunition, introduced, by implication, the mandatory marking by the fact that any firearm, in order to authorise its possession (import, export, trade), must be identify in an unequivocal manner (in particular: by the serial number, the year of manufacture, model, etc…)…

[Editor's Note: After reviewing available legislation and other source documents, GunPolicy.org found no evidence of a provision in law to regulate the 'ballistic fingerprinting' aspect of firearm policy. As some authorities enforce restrictions only in practice, the mere absence of a published legal provision should be treated with caution]
