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.

Record-keeping

This chapter addresses the record-keeping requirements under article 7 of the Protocol. The Protocol requires States to “ensure the maintenance” of certain information pertaining to firearms and, where feasible, their parts and components and ammunition. However, the Protocol does not specify whether suchrecords should be kept by the State itself or by persons and entities engaged in manufacturing, importing, exporting and so on. It is up to each State to determine whether records should be kept by the State and/or by persons and entities engaged in firearms-related activities. Annex I (Additional considerations) provides further suggested text that drafters can consider for inclusion in their national legislation.
