REGISYNC — Securing arms, protecting citizens
Illicit small arms are fuelling armed violence and organised crime, global terrorism and conflicts, thwarting sustainable development and crisis management efforts. They destabilise entire regions, states and their societies, and increase the impact of terrorist attacks.
The diversion and trafficking of firearms is a major security threat for the EU and its partners. The lack of harmonization between countries’ legal definitions, national legal frameworks, and firearms registration systems impede efforts to systematically collect and share information that could be used to prevent
and detect diversion of firearms to criminal and terrorist organizations within and beyond the EU. By identifying common minimum standards for civilian firearms registers and fostering information exchange, this project supports states in their efforts to effectively implement the EU Firearms Directive.
