Annual Club Administration Information

The Police/PNZ LOA requires that each club sends its local Arms officer an annual update of its membership each year. (Refer Section "Relationship Police/NZPA" - Section 2.6)  The form above was created to help with this process. In addition and for more details on this annual requirement, refer to the Police Firearms Manual 2002, Section 5, Appendix 5.2. NOTE: The 2002 Firearms Manual has been removed from the Police Website. An update on reporting requirements under the 2020 Act will be sent to clubs in due course.
