Permission to grant commercial weapons

Permission to manufacture, process or repair firearms or ammunition on a commercial or independent course of business must be applied to the firearms authority responsible for the registered office. It may be limited to certain types of firearms and ammunition.

Permission is granted only to a natural person (individual company). In the case of legal entities, the responsible managing director or the individual personally liable shareholders each require a permit.

If the arms manufacturing industry is to be carried out by a substitute or if a person is entrusted with the management of a branch or an independent branch, a proxy permit must be applied for for them.

The licence shall expire if the activity has not started within one year of the grant of the permit or has not been carried out for one year. The time limits may be extended for special reasons.
