TRADING IN SECURITY MATERIAL

We have been a holder of a concession for the handling of safety material since 2010 and we offer complete services in the field.

 

Handling of security material in the Czech Republic

 

Legislation dealing with security material currently involves Act 229/2013 Coll., which entered into force on 1 January 2014 and replaced Act. 310/206  Coll and also Act No. 266/2014 Coll.

The handling of security material in the Czech Republic is subject to certain safety risks. The Czech Parliament therefore adopted a law that regulates this area. The law was prepared by the Ministry of Industry and Trade in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior. It regulates the handling of security material that forms the legal tools enabling the state to carry out adequate regulation of this area, particularly with regard to the public interest in relation to the provision of public order and safety, and the obligation of the state to guarantee people basic rights and freedoms.

The scope of security material to which this Act applies is identified by Decree No. 295/2014 Coll., on the list of security material items.

 

The breakdown of security material

 

Group 1

Flamethrowers or smoke or gas generators which cause the immobilization, injury or death of a person, if they are operational.

Group 2

Mine detonators if they are operational.

Group 3

Equipment for controlling gunfire, the steering and guidance of missiles, if they are operational.

Group 4

Recovery tank, crane tanks, engineer tanks and engineer machines for the tank chassis, if they are operational, with the exception of those used in the integrated rescue system.

Group 5

a) Tanks, armored combat vehicles, including infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, combat vehicles with heavy armament and self-propelled artillery systems, including cannons, howitzers, cannon, mortars, rocket launchers and systems linking their characteristics, with weapons irreversibly deteriorated or destroyed according to other legislation 2) so as to prevent their reuse or modification for military purposes, or vehicles fitted with mountings for arms or equipment for mine laying or the launching of munitions, or b) bridge tanks and other armored vehicles and armored personnel carriers, including vehicles with a superstructure or derived from vehicles referred to in paragraph a).

Group 6

a) Combat aircraft and helicopters and other aircraft and helicopters with special structural features associated with military use, produced after 1 January 1946, if they are operational, or

b) unmanned aerial combat vehicles heavier or lighter than air, motorized or non-motorized, autonomous or remote-controlled unmanned aerial vehicles and other special structural features associated with military use, if they are operational.

Group 7

Equipment for electronic countermeasures and protection against them (eg. equipment designed to broadcast erroneous or deceptive signals into radar or radio communication receivers or otherwise hindering the reception, operation or the effectiveness of adversary electronic receivers), including jamming and counter-jamming equipment specially designed for use by security forces, if they are operational.

Group 8

a) Military types of trainers for conducting attacks, combat flight simulators, operational flight, simulators for radar reconnaissance, generators, radar target generators, gunnery training devices, anti-submarine warfare trainers, flight simulators (including centrifugal simulators for pilots or astronauts), radar trainers, navigational flight simulators, navigation simulators, missile firing simulators, equipment for visualizing goals, unmanned UAVs, armament trainers, unmanned UAVs, if they are specially designed for military use, or

b) systems for the creation of displays and interactive environment systems for simulators, if specially designed for military use.

Group 9

Equipment for electronic countermeasures and protection against them (eg. equipment designed to broadcast erroneous or deceptive signals into radar or radio communication receivers or otherwise hindering the reception, operation or the effectiveness of adversary electronic receivers), including jamming and counter-jamming equipment specially designed for military use, if they are operable.

Group 10

a) Portable handheld laser devices, which include a laser classified into the hazard class 3R, 3B or 43 according to ČSN EN 60825-1 ED2, while this laser can be modified for the creation or the strengthening of 

coherent electromagnetic radiation visible to the human eye and through which it is possible to target a laser beam on a certain object, thus preventing the fulfillment of its task,

 

b) passive surveillance systems,

 

c) laser systems specially designed for the destruction or the disabling of the fulfillment of tasks of targets,

 

d) particle beam systems capable of the destruction or disabling of the fulfillment of tasks of targets

 

e) high-performance high frequency systems capable of the destruction or the disabling of the fulfillment of tasks of targets

 

f) Laser systems specially designed to cause permanent blindness to unenhanced vision, i.e. the naked eye or to eyes equipped with corrective eyesight devices.

 

Group 11

 

Cameras and electro-optical display devices, specially designed for use in unmanned devices in Group 6, when operational.
