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.

Hide / Show Abstract

Illicit trafficking is one of the “central” offences established by the Protocol. Article 3, subparagraph (e), of the Protocol establishes two specific mandatory criminal offences in relation to illicit trafficking: (a) any transnational transfer of firearms, their parts and components and ammunition without legal authorization; and (b) any transnational transfer if the firearms are not marked in accordance with article 8 of the Protocol.
