Exemption Certificates

Recently there has been concern raised over the legislation surrounding the sale and purchase of firearms and the impact of rules such as section 11/4 exemption certificates.

The kind of questions asked and comments made have included:
- What's the deal with acquiring .22 rifles on exemption certificates?
- If acquiring off an individual, presumably they'll need to tell their local police they've disposed of a firearm.
- What happens at our end?
- Do we send a letter to the police with serial numbers etc?
- Keep a record of what we have got in a safe place?
- I've acquired ammo on one before, which is simple enough - RFD keep s a log of who he's sold it to, we keep a log of what we've bought, and which members we sell it to.
- What about firearms though?

The scope of the consultation sets out to seek the public's view on how best to implement powers to charge fees for firearms falling into the above categories and to enable the collection of such fees from the licence payer. It is anticipated that if the new proposals are passed the fees will come into force in 2017.
