The Paintball Regulation 2019 (the Regulation) ends on 1 September 2024 unless it is remade, with or without changes.

The NSW Government is seeking feedback on proposed changes to the Regulation. These include:

  • processes to apply to use paintball markers outside authorised venues
  • clarifying the information required to identify a paintball marker without a serial number
  • defining processes to dispose of paintball markers
  • introducing a new ground to refuse, suspend or cancel a permit
  • introducing new penalty amounts for failing to show permits and for unlawfully disposing of a paintball marker
  • updating fees in line with the Consumer Price Index.

For more information, refer to the Paintball Regulation 2024 Regulatory Impact Statement and draft regulation.

The remade regulation will support the Paintball Amendment Act 2023.
