National laws, regulations and administrative procedures:
National marking practices:
PT Pindad as the sole manufacturer pf SALW in Indonesia applies interantional standards for proper marking and identification, storage and record keeping. In this regard, the Government has comprehensive information on the legal production of SALW and a system of marking, record-keeping and tracing of nationally-produced SALW.
Marking at the time of import:
Marking of SALW in the possession of government armed and security forces:
Every weapon owned by the Indonesian Armed Forces and Indonesia National must have a licence and be approved through a ballistic test.
Measures against the removal or alteration of markings:
Accurate and comprehensive records for all marked SALW within their territory:
Under ISO 9001-9002, PT PINDAD keeps the records on the its production and transfers for 10 years. The records contains information on the type, quantity of production and the recipient. The Department of Defence and the National Police also keep records for 10 years.
Measures taken for undertaking traces and responding to tracing requests:
To undertake traces, the Indonesia National Police use ballistic tests conducted at the Police Forensic Laboratory Centre (PUSLABFOR). Information resulting from these tests is recorded as part of the details/specification/characteristics of the weapons
Operational information exchange:
Indonesia as one of the members of ICPO-Interpol plays an active role in exchanging information, especially information related to lost or stolen weapons which has been discovered by the police, then to be informed to the Interpol in Lyon-France and forwarded to all the member countries. NCB-Interpol Indonesia also has received many requests on assistance in checking its own database related to the lost/stolen weapons which has been discovered by police of other countries.

NCB-Interpol Indonesia uses the Interpol Global Police Communication System (I-24/7) to submit notices, share crucial police data securely and efficiently with police in other countries and to access the Interpol’s database and service 24 hours a day.

Indonesia has established and maintained cooperation not only with Interpol, but also through ASEANapol, especially in the exchange of information on lost or stolen weapons. Indonesia believes that this cooperation and networking can be used as a significant mechanism to combat illicit SALW.

This is reflected in the reports of meetings on SALW in the region, including the ASEAN Regional Forum on SALW that was held in Phnom Penh on 4 - 5 November 2006. That meeting also recommended that the SALW issue be added to the agenda of future ASEAN meetings. - The annual meetings of ASEANAPOL discuss and exchange information on the illicit trade in SALW in the region.
