Model law against the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, their parts and components and ammunition, second revised edition

image of Model law against the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, their parts and components and ammunition, second revised edition
It is hoped that the Model Law, as revised, remains a useful and practical voluntary tool, to facilitate the provision of legislative assistance to Member States, as well to guide policy makers, legal advisors and legislators, who wish to review or amend their domestic legal framework or adopt new legislation in a manner consistent with the Firearms Protocol and other relevant regional and international instruments, and will promote and facilitate international cooperation in preventing and combating criminal activity relating to firearms. The model legislative provisions contained in the Model Law are not meant to be transposed as such, but require careful consideration and customization to the specific domestic legal system in which they are supposed to operate.

Marking

Article 8 of the Protocol obliges States to require marking of firearms at the time of manufacture, import and transfer from government to civilian stocks. Such markings assist in the identification and tracing of firearms. The Protocol also requires States to encourage manufacturers to develop measures against the removal or alteration of markings. Annex I (Additional considerations) provides further suggested text that drafters can consider for inclusion in their national legislation, including non-mandatory provisions on the marking of parts and components and ammunition and regulatory provisions on the method of marking.
