General Information

The Firearm Licensing Authority (FLA) is the statutory body in the Ministry of National Security that regulates the legal and lawful use of private firearms in Jamaica in keeping with safe firearm use and handling standards worldwide.

The FLA acts as a centralised administrative body with responsibility for:

•Monitoring and regulating the issuance of firearm licences.

•Conducting relevant investigative checks where necessary.

•Ensuring proper and standardised Training Certification in the Safe Use and Care of firearms

•Conducting regular audits and security reviews of gun clubs, private security companies, shooting facilities, licensed firearm holders and their firearms.
