Annual Participation Report

Section 140 of the Weapons Act (the Act) has been amended to remove the requirement for pistol clubs to provide an annual participation report to the authorised officer before 31 August of each year.  The Amendment Act removes the legislative requirement to provide an annual report to the authorised officer.  This requirement will be replaced with random and targeted auditing. 

This amendment maintains a licensee’s obligation to keep individual participation reports under s134 of the Act, and to provide that information annually to each pistol club of which the person is a member'.
