Looking ahead to the 3rd Firearms Act Amendment Law – implementation of the EU Firearms Directive
This presentation gives an overview of the key elements of the planned “Third Law Amending the Firearms Act and other Regulations”, transposing the provisions of EU Directive 2017/853 into German law.
EU Directive 2017/853, which came into being partly in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015, requires numerous adjustments to Germany’s Firearms Act and other national regulations. This presentation provides a clear overview of the planned amendments, with an emphasis on those of special relevance to hunters and marksmen. In particular, this involves regulations governing magazine capacity and replicas of historic weapons. There will also be a brief outline of other topics such as the revised provisions governing duties to inform and labelling obligations for weapons and their principal components.
