Media Bulletin:Submit details of 
new applications

on 14 September 2021
by Dear South Africa

SAAADA & CHASA invite affected individuals to submit the details of their new firearm licence or competency certificate application’s processing period.

14 September 2021 – For immediate release

  • SAPS is obligated to process firearm licence and competency certificate applications within 90 days.
  • This is not being complied with, resulting in applicants waiting for many additional weeks and months before their applications are finalised.
  • Adding a further burden to successful applicants, licence cards are often only delivered additional weeks or months later.

The South African Arms and Ammunition Dealers Association (SAAADA) and Confederation of Hunting Associations of South Africa (CHASA) request applicants affected by the above, to please submit their relevant details in order to address this noncompliance with administrative procedures.

Your input will be invaluable in order for SAAADA & CHASA to take this matter up with the relevant authorities and committees, but also to provide vitally important locus standi in the event of court action.

Your details will not be made public, and the process is fully compliant with POPIA.

As a valued DearSA participant, we encourage you to participate at the following link; (the full details and draft bill are available at the link).

Your voice most certainly counts.

Already participated? Why not share to a friend.

Thank you for being democratically engaged, active and responsible.

Gideon Joubert
Director, Dear South Africa
