Legal notes Relating To Deactivated guns In The United Kingdom
Section 8 of the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988 determines that a firearm shall be deemed to be deactivated when the necessary work is carried out in accordance with the standards set by the Secretary of State and the firearm is “Proof Marked” ( A cross stamped with the Last 2 digits of the year of deactivation ) and certified by one of the two UK Proof Houses (London or Birmingham). In these circumstances it ceases to be regarded as a firearm, unless the contrary is shown, and is no longer subject to certification. The definition of a ‘firearm’ is set out in section 57 of the Firearms Act 1968 (as amended) It also covers any component part of a lethal or prohibited weapon.
Firearms deactivated outside the UK do not conform to the UK standard of deactivation. The notice to importers No 2864 (point 34) issued by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills stipulates that an import licence is not required to import a firearm if it has been both stamped and has a certificate of deactivation issued by a UK Proof House. This is the only acceptable proof of deactivation. Any marks made by other authorities or documentation supplied by them cannot be taken as evidence that a firearm has been rendered incapable of discharging any shot, bullet or other missile, and has consequently ceased to be a firearm within the meaning of the UK Firearms Acts.
There can be no guarantee in these circumstances that a person selling or possessing such a gun without the necessary certificate or section 5 authorisation would not be prosecuted. Furthermore, unless he complies with the evidential provisions of Section 8 of the 1988 Act, a seller leaves himself potentially exposed to subsequent action for supplying it illegally should a court at some later stage pronounce that it considers the item to be a firearm or a component thereof.
Self-produced certificates are not acceptable as proof of deactivation in the UK. Such certificates may soon be banned throughout Europe if changes being proposed under the EU Weapons Directive are accepted.
