NSW Police Force Firearms Registry’s response to COVID-19

The Firearms Registry is continuing to operate as business as usual, with all our service offerings currently available.

We are continuing to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on our customers and the industry. We are aware that some club members may not be able to fulfil their obligations in respect of participation requirements due to social distancing measures.

Various arrangements are being considered by the Firearms Registry as we do not want any licence holder to be affected adversely because of circumstances outside of their control.
