"This UNLIREC project, being developed in partnership with the National Regulatory Entity for Security Services, Firearms, Ammunition and Explosives for Civil Use (SUCAMEC), will contribute to reducing these risks by providing training, guidance and recommendations so that companies may improve the management and security of their arms and ammunition inventories.
