Firearms, shotguns and explosives licensing

Changes to Firearms and Shotgun Certificate applications from 3 September 2018

From 3 September 2018, Nottinghamshire Police will require the ‘medical declaration’ information provided with applications for a new certificate to be verified by the applicant’s GP.

More information about how these changes affect your application are available on the Firearms, shotguns and explosives licensing web page, along with a template for requesting for this information from your GP.

Important notice

  • If you believe a firearm has been used to commit a criminal offence, please call 999 immediately.
  • If you believe someone you know may possess a firearm without proper authorisation, please call Nottinghamshire Police using the non-emergency 101 number.
