PALs makeover 2023

Changes for those who purchase gunpowder and reactive targets came into effect on May 22.

To purchase black or smokeless powder, a buyer must provide proof that they possess one of the following:

  • Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL)
  • Fireworks Operator Certificate (FOC)
  • Public Agency Identification Number (PAIN)

A PAL is also required to buy reactive targets (type S.2). The PAL number will be recorded.

The new regs include weight restrictions on black powder or reactive targets purchased with a PAL.
