BASC has re-stated its policy on lead ammunition
BASC will vigorously oppose any unwarranted restrictions on the use of lead ammunition.
A new policy statement agreed by Council on May 17th sets out the organisation’s position on lead ammunition, how BASC works with other organisations and the law on lead ammunition.
The policy re-statement has been triggered by recent activity surrounding the use of lead ammunition with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) surveying the use of lead ammunition across the European Union.
Christopher Graffius, BASC’s director of communications, said: “In the light of the European Chemicals Agency process on lead ammunition, it was felt wise to ensure that the policy is crystal clear to Government, our members and kindred organisations.”
