Work on drafting the new Law on Weapons and Ammunition in Serbia continues

Continuing its support to the Ministry of Interior of Serbia in drafting the new Law on Weapons and Ammunition, SEESAC organized the second Workshop on the draft Law on Weapons and Ammunition in Sabac on 27-29 March.

“Finalizing the new Law on Weapons and Ammunition is crucial” emphasized Mr. Danilo Stevandić, State Secretary of the Ministry of Interior. "It plays a crucial role in enhancing overall security and represents a significant step towards the European Union integration process."

Building on the groundwork laid during the initial Workshop, discussions focused on the fine-tuning of regulations on the possession and carrying of weapons, as well as on procedures for the collection, registration, and issuance of relevant documents for the storage of weapons and ammunition.

SEESAC supports the Western Balkan jurisdictions in harmonizing their arms-control legislation with the Union regulatory framework and other related international obligations and standards across the region and thus continues to strengthen safety and security through regional cooperation in South East Europe.

This Workshop was organized within the EU Council Decision (CFSP) 2019/2111 under the framework of SEESAC disarmament and arms control activities in South-East Europe reducing the threat of illicit small arms and light weapons and their ammunition.
