Firearms Licensing

The Firearms Licensing Department offers advice on matters relating on Shotguns, Firearms and Explosives Certification.

 

Our policy is based on ensuring that Public Safety is not jeopardised and that all applications are dealt with on a fair and equal basis.

 

Shotgun renewal application letters give alternative ways of acquiring an application form as well as a list of the criteria needed for countersignatures. They are sent out within 12 weeks of the expiring certificate date. We also enclose a checklist to assist with the application.

 

Co-Terminus and Firearm renewal application letters are sent within 12 weeks of the expiring certificates. Please remember to submit your Land Permission Letters, and any Club membership details with your application on renewal.

 

We request that renewal applications are submitted to the below address by post within at least 6 weeks of the certificate expiry date to enable us to process the application before the expiry date.

 

This is providing all the details have been entered correctly or the application will be returned to the applicant for amendments which will delay the process. Please remember to submit your expiring certificate on renewal.

 

It is an offence to possess a firearm or shotgun without a current certificate

 

Please note that as from the 01.12.13 the application forms for Shotgun and Firearms Renewals and Grants have been revised by the Home Office.  

 

These forms are combined in new application form 201.  There is also a new form for Variations, form 202.   Please refer to Guidance Notices form 202 before completing these forms.

 

The old forms CID135, CID 137 and CID 138 will NOT be accepted by North Wales Police after the 31.12.2013.
