The Firearms (Amendment) Rules 2019 - Medical Declaration Required

on Tue, 04/06/2019 - 4:04pm

With effect from 10 June 2019 Registered Firearms Dealer (RFDs) applicants will be required to complete a medical declaration and to provide details of their ‘servants’ at each place of business so that relevant background checks can be completed by the police.  Existing RFDs will also be required to provide details of their ‘servants’ when notifying the police of a new place of business.  

RFD applicants who have completed medical declarations as part of their personal firearm or shotgun certificate application will not be required to undergo medical checks a second time unless their medical circumstances have changed since the firearm or shotgun certificate was granted.  In these circumstances, the applicant will only be required to provide details about the certificate. 

The changes to the Firearms Rules come into effect on 10 June – Revised RFD application forms will be available on the TVP website on and after this date.
