55A. Disposal of forfeited or surrendered firearms, etc.

(1) For the purposes of section 35(5)(b)(i)(A) of the Act, the following requirements govern the sale or disposal of a firearm, firearm part or ammunition:
(a) a sale is to be by public auction or public tender (and the Registrar may, but need not, fix a reserve price for the purpose);
(b) the firearm, firearm part or ammunition may be disposed of otherwise than by sale if the Registrar believes on reasonable grounds that the firearm, firearm part or ammunition has no monetary value or that the proceeds of the sale would be unlikely to exceed the costs of the sale or if the firearm, firearm part or ammunition has been offered for sale and was not sold.

(2) Before paying the proceeds of a sale or disposal of a firearm, firearm part or ammunition to a person under section 35(5)(b)(i)(B) or (e) of the Act, the Registrar may deduct expenses incurred in connection with the sale or disposal and storage and other expenses incurred in relation to the firearm, firearm part or ammunition.

(3) For the purposes of section 35(5)(d) of the Act, the period for which a firearm, firearm part or ammunition must be made available for collection is 1 month.
