Section 21: Content and validity of a trade permit for dealing in firearms (601/2001)

A trade permit for dealing in firearms shall state the activity covered by the permit and the type of firearms, firearm components, cartridges and specially dangerous projectiles for which the permit has been granted. The permit entitles the holder to carry on the firearms trade only at the place of business stated in the permit. The trade may, however, be carried on elsewhere on a temporary basis.

The permit is granted indefinitely unless, for a special reason, it should be granted for a fixed term.
