Any person who decides to become the legal owner of a weapon must collect a certain list of documents to obtain a license. An important role in this list is played by a medical certificate in the form 046-1.
Who can get help
There are many reasons why people want to get permission to keep weapons for personal use or because of their occupation. But this is possible only if there is a medical certificate, which will exclude the applicant's mental illness and some physical disabilities. A weapon certificate can be obtained by persons over 18 years of age in accordance with the law of the Russian Federation on age restrictions. A document is considered legitimate if it contains detailed information about the identity of the recipient and the medical institution that issued it, as well as all the necessary signatures and seals of specialists on a state-approved letterhead.
To issue certificate 046-1, you must have a passport, military ID and a license to store weapons, if an extension of its validity is required. An applicant for a permit will need the opinion of a psychiatrist, narcologist and ophthalmologist. Each of these specialists makes the appropriate notes on the form, based on the diagnostic and advisory activities carried out. The therapist issues a general opinion and finalizes the document. Obtaining a weapon permit is not possible with a number of mental disorders, epilepsy, drug addiction, substance abuse, alcoholism, severe visual impairment, and the absence of a thumb and forefinger.
Where can I get the document
When issuing a medical certificate 046-1, it is important to know that a fake and any violation of the rules for filling it out, including the use of a form not intended for this, entails punishment from law enforcement agencies. Therefore, you need to approach with all responsibility the choice of a medical institution that will deal with the paperwork. As a rule, this issue is dealt with by a polyclinic at the place of residence or medical centers that are licensed to conduct an examination for the issuance of a permit for the storage of weapons.
What is the validity period of the certificate 046-1
The internal affairs bodies, issuing a license for the storage of weapons, limit the validity of the document upon initial application to six months. This means that no more than six months must elapse from the time the medical report is issued to the application for a permit. In case of renewal of the license (it is issued for five years), documents must be submitted three months before the expiration of the previous permit.
