On 1 July 2019 the Paintball Act 2018 and Paintball Regulation 2019 commenced and made various amendments resulting in the removal of paintball regulation from the Firearms Act 1996.

The regulation of paintball has been transferred from NSW Police Force to NSW Fair Trading in the Department of Customer Service which will establish a separate system for permits for the regulation of paintball markers, paintball venues and paintball activities.

Further information can be obtained on the NSW Fair Trading website or refer to our What's New - Transfer of Paintball to NSW Fair Trading document.
