The MVSN was regulated by the Regio decreto legge 4 agosto 1924, n. 1292 (Royal decree-law 4 August 1924, n. 1292), which made it an Armed Force of the State. The first article states: "The MVSN is part of the Armed Forces of the State. Its members swear the oath of allegiance to the King and are subject to the same disciplinary and penal regulations of the members of the Regio Esercito [Royal Army]." ("La MVSN fa parte delle Forze Armate dello Stato. I suoi componenti prestano giuramento di fedeltà al Re e sono soggetti alle stesse disposizioni disciplinari e penali di quelli appartenenti al Regio Esercito.").
