Service Description

If you transfer your firearm and/or ammunition requiring a permit to another person, you must notify the competent firearms authority within two weeks. The competent weapons authority will then delete the entry for the weapon and/or ammunition from your weapons possession card (WBK) and, if applicable, from your European firearms pass.

You do not have to report if you

  • hand over essential parts of the weapon to have embellishment work or similar work carried out and then receive them back after the work has been completed,
  • leave weapons and/or ammunition in the context of a training and work relationship,
  • you temporarily provide weapons and/or ammunition for shooting at a shooting range.

Process flow

You must report the transfer of weapons and/or ammunition requiring a permit to the responsible weapons authority. Submit the application together with the required documents.
