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.

Simplified procedures for temporary import, export and transit

As stated in article 10, paragraph 6, of the Protocol, States may choose to adopt simplified procedures to allow private individuals to temporarily import or export firearms, their parts and components and ammunition for verifiable lawful purposes such as hunting, sport shooting, evaluation, exhibitions or repair. This list of activities in the Protocol is not exhaustive. It should also be noted that under article 8, paragraph 1 (b), of the Protocol additional import markings need not be affixed where firearms are imported temporarily for “verifiable lawful purposes”. This provision applies only in cases where States have opted to introduce simplified procedures in accordance with article 10, paragraph 6, of the Protocol.
