Firearms experts will search for the ways to enhance the control of the firearms | author: Scanpix/ Reuters

On 15-16 October this year representatives of the Lithuanian police will chair the European Firearms Experts Working Group (hereinafter EFE) plenary meeting in The Hague, The Netherlands. The meeting will be focused on the ways of controlling the trade in firearms on the Internet and at the fairs, the fight against converting inappropriate or gas arms into firearms, as well as illegal trafficking in firearms on the territory of the European Union. The issues of controlling the shipment of firearms and making firearms absolutely unusable will also be discussed at the meeting. 

EFE Network is an informal Network of the national experts from the European countries, which was established to provide the Law Enforcement Working Party of the EU Council with the competent knowledge. It was decided to establish this Network of the national firearms experts at the 10th European Police Chiefs meeting in 2004, seeking to ensure more efficient fight against illegal turnover of firearms by common efforts of the EU Member States. EFE Network considers legal, organizational, technical and other continuing issues which are important for preventing the turnover of illegal firearms and firearm-related crimes in the EU, as well as enhancing the control and effective interaction of law enforcement institutions in these fields.
