Gas spray permit
The police may grant a gas spray permit to a natural person, association or foundation. The permit entitles the holder to acquire and possess a gas spray.
During the validity of the permit, the gas spray permit holder may exchange the spray for a new one without having to get a new permit. This rule does not apply to old possession permits for gas sprays. The police require applicants to be familiar with the safe use of sprays.
Gas spray permits for the protection of your own or somebody else’s personal integrity or property are granted for up to five years. When applying for a permit for this purpose, applicants must demonstrate that the spray is necessary for the protection of personal integrity, by providing a certificate issued by their employer, for example.
When applying for a gas spray permit, a passport or ID card, grounds for the application (in writing) and other application-specific appendices must be presented.
An association or foundation may issue a gas spray to an employee aged 18 or more, for the purposes of carrying it when on duty, unless the terms of the gas spray permit state otherwise. The firearms officer of the association or foundation is responsible for instructing the employee in the use of the spray. The police may set conditions for the carrying of gas sprays.
