Firearms & Ammunition
FACE and its Members seek to ensure that hunters can acquire, possess, use and travel with firearms and ammunition safely and without unjustified, bureaucracy, costs or restrictions. Many of these aspects are presently covered by EU law, either through full harmonisation or minimum rules.
European Sport Shooting Forum - ESSF is an informal discussion platform of European representatives of civil firearms and ammunition-related sectors (manufacturers, retailers, users) and of which FACE was one of the co-founders. Together members of the ESSF collaborate in providing relevant expertise to the Commission expert groups and elsewhere in the EU decision-making process. This has proven valuable in terms of advocating hunters’ interests, for example with regards to the implementation of Article 10 of the UNFP into EU law.
