SAGA Media Statement on Green Licences

“SAGA’s advice to those persons who are only in possession of green licences under the old Arms and Ammunition Act, is that steps should now be taken to transition to the FCA, and affected members must do the required proficiency tests and obtain the relevant competency certificate(s) from SAPS and then apply for the relevant license(s). Since the “green” licenses are deemed valid, we are of the opinion that it never was (and still is) not necessary to surrender the firearm while awaiting the new “white” license. The SAPS (and others) may have a different opinion in this regard.”
