9A. Duration and renewal of licences

(1) The period for which this section provides that a licence is valid is subject to —
(a) any other provision of this Act; and
(b) anything endorsed on the licence,
under which the licence ceases to be valid earlier.

(2) An Ammunition Collector's Licence is valid for a period of 5 years from the day on which it was issued or last renewed.

(2a) A Firearm Collector's Licence is valid for a period of 3 years from the day on which it was issued or last renewed unless that day was before the day on which the Firearms Amendment Act 2004 section 12 came into operation, in which case it is valid for a period of 5 years from the day on which it was issued or last renewed.

(3) Any other licence under this Act is valid for a period of 12 months from the day on which it was issued or last renewed.

(4) The Commissioner may, on payment of the prescribed fee, renew a licence from time to time for further periods on application made within one month before, or within 12 months after, its expiry.

(5) Where a licence is renewed on application made within one month before, or within 3 months after, its expiry, it is deemed to have been renewed immediately after its expiry and the renewal is deemed to be a continuation of the licence.

(6) Where a licence is renewed on application made more than 3 months, but not more than 12 months, after its expiry, the renewal takes effect on and from the day on which it is effected but, for the purpose of determining the day when the renewed licence expires, it is deemed to have been renewed immediately after it previously expired.

(7) A licence cannot be renewed under this section more than 12 months after its expiry, but the person who held it is not prevented from making an application for a licence under section 18(1).
