The Australian Firearms Information Network (AFIN) helps police and other law enforcement agencies manage the registration, licensing and movement of firearms coming into Australia and moving between our states and territories.
AFIN provides a national view of information available about each firearm in Australia known to police and law enforcement agencies, improving and enhancing the current information available to support law enforcement agencies and the officers who protect our communities.
When fully integrated with police and law enforcement agencies, AFIN will replace the National Firearms Licensing and Registration System (NFLRS) which holds current state and territory firearm licensing and registration records.
The Australian Firearms Information Network is referred to as the National Firearms Interface in the Australian Crime Commission Regulations 2002 (ACC Regulations), Regulation 2A(2)(l). A reference to the Australian Firearms Information Network is a reference to the National Firearms Interface for the purpose of the ACC Regulations and the definition of National Policing Information in the Australian Crime Commission Act 2002.
