The National Association of Responsible Firearm Owners (NARFO),  is an accredited hunting and sports shooting association in terms of the Firearms Control Act 60 of 2000. It is a non- political firearm owners’ association that strives to promote the right to legal firearm possession and the safe use of firearms by any law-abiding South African citizen for self-defence, sports shooting, hunting, recreational use, collection or production.


The CFR (Central Firearms Register) currently has a backlog with regards to the timely processing of SAPS 350 Forms, which importers and traders are obliged to submit weekly. Most traders usually send this Form electronically (via E-Mail) on the same day they receive stock. These Forms are often submitted faster than possible to process.

Despite the fact that processing of SAPS 350 Forms had been delayed for many years, a workable solution had nevertheless been provided. The DFO (Designated Firearms Officer) designated a Firearms Officer at the local police station, who has been authorized to catch up and to clear the processing backlog. The only requirement was that all the paperwork relating to SAPS 350 Forms had to be in order and was to be accompanied by the SAPS 271 Licence Application. Thus, the DFO was in a position to be positive that the firearm was included in the merchant system. Therefore, it was possible to continue reading License Applications onto the CFR computer system.

Very recently, however, the SVR unilaterally made a decision under which the procedure followed to catch up on the backlog was called to a halt and suspended. Currently, if the firearm does not appear on the merchant system, then the DFO is unable to proceed with the License Application or enter it into the computer system.

ISO NET unfortunately has no control over how long the License Application process will take.
