On the following pages you will find advice to help you understand some of the requirements for granting the renewal of shotgun and firearms certificates.
Lancashire's firearms policy is based on ensuring that public safety is never jeopardised. Our work, including the necessary vetting of each and every applicant, inevitably takes time.
Every effort is made to ensure that each application is processed quickly and efficiently - applicants can assist in the matter by ensuring that their paperwork is submitted correctly and on time.
This section of the website is dedicated to helping you submit your application correctly first time.
