EU to develop firearms tracing handbook based on ISACS


"The Commission will moreover continue to fully support the European Firearms Experts Group's activities to develop a handbook for tracking and tracing illegal firearms. Building upon the International Tracing Instrument and the international best practices developed by the United Nations International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS), this manual will be disseminated to all Member States' law enforcement authorities. Tracing guidance and rules could include a requirement to generate reports to Europol to facilitate international tracing requests.”
