Thursday, 09 April 2015
Bulgaria has banned imports and transportation of ammunition with the purpose of utilization and disposal on its territory.
The ban is covering the transportation of all types of firearms ammunition for the purpose of import as well as transportation of ammunition into Bulgaria from another country for the purpose of utilization and/or disposal, the government announced on Wednesday.
There is risk involved in the process of utilization of surplus or unserviceable ammunition but unforeseen consequences can occur if the utilization is conducted at factories that are not among the producers of the pieces of ammunition being dismantled, or are unaware of the proper techniques of utilization, or the pieces of ammunition are being processed past their expiry date, the cabinet said in a statement.
