Section 36: Commercial export permit and commercial transit permit

The ministry handling firearm issues grants and revokes a permit for the export of firearms, firearm components, cartridges and specially dangerous projectiles from Finland for a commercial purpose (commercial export permit), and a permit for their transit for a commercial purpose (commercial transit permit).

A commercial export permit may be granted to a firearms dealer who has the right to carry on the firearms trade with the firearms, firearm components, cartridges and specially dangerous projectiles to be exported. The authority granting a commercial export permit may require that the applicant present an end-user certificate or other reliable account stating that there are no obstacles to the granting of the permit.

A commercial transit permit may be granted to an applicant who presents an end-user certificate or other reliable account stating that there are no obstacles to the granting of the permit.

The licensing authority shall, if the handling of the permit matter so requires, ascertain from the ministry handling foreign affairs that there are no foreign or security policy obstacles to the granting of the permit.
