Nationwide registration of all firearms
All states and territories now require registration of all firearms with the agreed particulars. In the 1997 report it was noted that there was no legislative requirement for links to the National Exchange of Police Information (NEPI) or access by other states in South Australia, Victoria or Western Australia.
Whilst the position of the legislation in these jurisdictions remains unchanged, all jurisdictions have now established links to the NEPI scheme and to other State and Territory registration systems through either legislative provisions or administrative mechanisms.
