This document has been written for the purpose of defining the features of a personal police sidearm and primary support weapon. In its full extent it can be used for type certification of a product. When using it to define the technical requirements for an invitation to tender a subset of the requirements can be selected and rated according to their importance to the procuring unit. A further subset can be defined for carrying out acceptance inspections of a manufacturing lot or for assessing and monitoring the current firearms in use. This document describes an open system of requirements for different types of firearms recognizing that several different technical implementations may comply with the requirements and police needs. Tactical environments may set differing priorities on requirements. Based on tactical views a suitable set of requirements can be chosen and their threshold values adjusted. In this document the term support weapon denotes a two hand submachine gun and assault rifle type of weapon usually being utilized when the tactical situation requires longer response distance, better precision or more power than the personal sidearm can provide.
