Renew your fire arm licences at least 90 days before they expire.
This is the request from the Humansdorp SAPS. The purpose of renewing a firearm licence or permit is to determine if a person still complies with the provisions of the Firearms Control Act, 2000 (Act No 60 of 2000) and the Firearms Control Regulations, 2004 in order to ensure effective control and responsible firearm and ammunition ownership, the police say.
“All applications for the renewal of a licence or permit to possess a firearm are subject to the provision that the applicant must be in possession of a valid and relevant competency certificate. Any person who wishes to renew his or her licence to possess a firearm, to deal in firearms, to manufacture firearms or to conduct business as a gunsmith, must apply at least 90 days before the expiry date of the licence, for the renewal of the applicable licence as well as a renewal of the relevant competency certificate,” the police add.
