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.

Import, export and transit of firearms, their parts and components and ammunition

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).
