Members should be aware that application forms for the granting and renewal of firearm and shotgun certificates were changed in December 2013.
Police Scotland will continue to remind applicants 12 weeks in advance of certificate expiry. However, the new form, 201, which replaces the old forms, 101 and 103, must now be downloaded from the Police Scotland website, filled in and returned (in hard copy) to the Police.
The forms cannot be filled in online as a signature is required.
You can find the forms to download, plus all guidance regarding the new procedure, on http://www.scotland.police.uk/about-us/finance/service-fees-and-charges/firearms
