The police, like the NHS, are on the forefront of the fight against coronavirus. As such, many forces are reassigning resources to the front line so they can best help and protect the UK at this extremely difficult time. This means that some firearms departments are putting new procedures in place.
Grants: A number of licensing authorities are not accepting applications for new licences during the pandemic. Whilst we are happy to provide a medical check for your future application we recommend you checking with your police force before using our service, as once complete medical reports are only valid for a certain period of time.
Renewals: At present firearms authorities are doing everything they can to deliver renewals in the normal manner, while also looking for ways to ease the strain this virus is putting on both their departments and individual applicants. They are aware that, due to the extraordinary and ever-changing situation at present, delays to every stage of the process may be inevitable. MedCert will, as always, not only keep you informed throughout the report process but also keep up to date on each authority's changing requirements and follow their guidelines on your behalf.
