Small arms for civilian use

Amendment to the Cartridge Testing Ordinance 2013

Users of small arms and ammunition for civilian purposes (hunters, sporting shooters, etc.) must be protected from hazards caused by unsuitable firearms and ammunition to the greatest extent possible, as must persons who are in the immediate vicinity of said firearm users.

The ordinances of the package transpose into national law the decisions issued by the Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms (CIP) on the technical parameters of civilian small arms and ammunition and their proofing.
