The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Protocol on the Control of Firearms, Ammunition and Related Materials (2001) provides for the regulation of arms brokering activities in SADC Member States. In this regard, section 5.3 (m) of the protocol stipulates that State Parties should incorporate provisions that ""regulate firearm brokering"" in their national laws ""as a matter of priority"". However, only two of these Member States have specific legislative provisions to regulate brokering activities, namely Mauritius and South Africa.
