On 14 March, the EU Parliament Research Service published this briefing which explains changes proposed to controls.  A proposed EU Regulation would pursue 3 main objectives: a) neutralising the risks of trafficking at import and export; b) ensuring traceability in the firearms trade, based on systematic written information; and c) promoting efficient implementation of controls. It would replace the current Regulation and extend the material scope to exports, provide for consistent interpretation of rules across Member States, and allows for the flow of data at EU level.
