Lead ban in the EU? The consequences for hunting and sport
The subject of hunting and animal protection directly linked - in Germany this is regulated by law through § 20 of the German Constitution, as in many other countries worldwide.
In addition, the requirements for hunting ammunition are usually laid down in the respective hunting laws and their regulations, which have been in force for years.
However, for some years now there has been a trend which makes it necessary to deal with this subject more intensively.
This is the issue of "leaded versus lead-free hunting ammunition".
For some time now, this issue has not only preoccupied hunters but also non-hunting society and seems to be mutating into a question of faith.
The background for these discussions is the European chemical law REACh (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals), which is unknown to most, as well as the requirements of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) of the European Commission.
