Are there any products that are restricted by UK customs?

British law has always been very strict about who can own or move firearms, ammunition and explosives but the rules are now even more stringent in light of the heightened risk of terrorism. All firearms and explosives must be licensed and there is a total ban on offensive weapons such as knuckle-dusters and flick knives.
It is also against the law to import:
High voltage electric ‘stun guns’.
Pepper sprays, CS gas canisters and other self defence sprays. 
High-powered air rifles.  
Martial Arts weapons such as death stars and sword sticks.
Knives that have a concealed blade. 
You may bring component parts of firearms into the country, unless you have a licence for the weapon for which the parts are intended as components may be put to illegal uses. 
All firearms must have a police shotgun licence or firearm certificate. 

Please do not attempt to bring any of the above mentioned products to FIREX. Failure to heed this warning will result in immediate expulsion from the show and possible prosecution. 

Am I entitled to a free entry in the official FIREX International Event Guide?

Yes, as an exhibitor at FIREX International, you are entitled to a free entry in the official Event Guide, distributed free of charge to all pre-registered visitors. Please make sure your profile is up to date on the Directory using the password sent to you via email.
