In response to the proposed banning of lead in ammunition, the NSRA has produced the document ("Lead in Small-bore Target Shooting" together with 4 annexes) linked below. This is being shared with other organisations to help them produce their own versions in the context of their disciplines. Although this will be submitted from the NSRA, it will also add to the combined response from the target shooting sector though our links to BSSC and other shooting organisations.
Whilst a collective response from the sport is critical, it is very important for all clubs and individuals to make their thoughts and comments known separately. Please use the information contained in this document to help form your ideas and construct your own individual responses.
The Health and Safety Executive has launched an online consultation which can be viewed at https://consultations.hse.gov.uk/crd-reach/restriction-proposals-001/consultation/
The NSRA has also responded to the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) who are conducting a similar survey and consultation.
