MyFirearms upgrade will impact draft applications and forms
From 16 June to 24 June 2023, we’re carrying out a system upgrade to support the launch of the Firearms Registry. MyFirearms will be unavailable during this time. As part of this upgrade, we will need to delete all draft applications and forms. This includes any that have been saved but unsubmitted for less than the usual 30-day retention period. If you start an application in MyFirearms, please complete and submit it before 16 June 2023. We apologise for any inconvenience. For help with your application, call 0800 844 431.
