15. Category D Licences - Restrictions on Issue
The Commissioner must not issue a category D licence to any person unless:
(a) the genuine reason established by the person for being issued with the licence is that of vertebrate pest animal control, and
(b) in addition to establishing any such genuine reason, the person produces evidence to the Commissioner's satisfaction that there is a special need for the person to possess or use a firearm to which a licence category D applies.
(c) in the case of a person referred to in paragraph (c) of the genuine reason of vertebrate pest animal control, the person produces evidence to the Commissioner's satisfaction that any such special need cannot be met by any other means (including by the authority conferred by a category A, category B or category C licence, or by engaging the services of a professional contract shooter).
