What to do if you discover or inherit a so-called defence firearm (category A)?

Last updated: 23/02/2023

The acquisition and possession of a category A firearm is subject to authorisation.

If the individual who discovers or inherits a firearm does not already have a firearms licence he must apply for authorisation to possess a firearm or hand the firearm over to the Police Department within three months of acquisition (Article 9 of loi no 913, du 18 juin 1971).
