Article 10, paragraph 1, of the Protocol requires States to establish or maintain an effective system of licensing or authorization to control the import and export of firearms, their parts and components and ammunition. The Protocol also requires that States take measures on international transit of firearms, their parts and components and ammunition. Such a system must ensure that suchitems are not exported to or through countries that have not authorized the transfer (article 10, paragraphs 2 and 4) and that the content of the documents used for legal import and export is sufficient to support the offence of trafficking (article 10, paragraph 3). States must also take measures to enhance accountability and security associated with their import and export system (article 10, paragraph 5).
