The Government is currently considering the Update Report from the Lead Ammunition Group.

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is currently carrying out a review of the potential risks presented by lead ammunition to establish if a case can be made to regulate their use within the EU.

The Government will consider both the Lead Ammunition Group Update Report and the findings of the ECHA review before deciding whether any changes to the current Regulations are required. The EHCA review is expected to be published in the summer.
