Ongoing National Firearms Amnesty

Although the NSWPF continues to encourage compliance with mandatory participation requirements, the challenges being faced due to the recent impacts of severe weather events and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic are acknowledged. If a club member has not complied with the participation requirements because it has not been feasible or practical to do so, the NSWPF will not revoke licences on failure to comply with mandatory participation requirements until after the 15 April 2023.

As of 15 April 2023, the NSWPF will return to considering compliance with participation requirements. This means that licence holders need to meet their 2022 participation requirements by 15 April 2023, or when their club's annual compliance period has been reached.
