Access to MoD ranges in the United Kingdom
National Rifle Association
Recent changes announced by Government and the Devolved Administrations have prompted questions about Covid-19 Policy on MoD ranges in the UK.
We can confirm that there has been no change to Defence Policy and the supporting Covid-19 procedures for affiliated Clubs using MoD ranges. Club officials are reminded that range bookings should not exceed 30 people, members must comply with 2m social distancing rules and any local Covid-19 restrictions set by MoD/DIO range safety staff.
Club officials responsible for MoD bookings are encouraged to check that all documentation is up to date including NRA affiliation, insurance, RCO qualifications and individual shooter competency cards.
All bookings must have a RASP and a Covid-19 Risk Assessment for the shooting activity. RCO’s are reminded of the requirement to conduct a range recce prior to the booking.
Please contact Nic Couldrey, Regional Ranges Manager, directly if you require further clarification.
