Loaders code of conduct

This is a code of practice for those who load for others. If followed, it will contribute to a safe and responsible future for the sport. It is primarily aimed at those who have successfully completed a loading qualification, such as that provided by Lantra Awards. The code will support and supplement the novice’s training and attainment of a qualification. This code should be read in conjunction with the BASC Shotgun Safety Code of Practice.

igh standards underpin public and political support for shooting, now and in the future.

The code provides advice at two levels:
Advice that must be followed in order to deliver sustainable shooting – unless otherwise stated, the term ‘must’ only applies to meeting the standards set by this code of practice and does not refer to a legal obligation.

Advice that should be followed in order to achieve best practice, any deviation from which would need justification.

The following Golden Rules apply:

1. The most important rule of gun handling – you should never point a gun, loaded or unloaded, in an unsafe direction.
2. No one should touch the trigger of a shotgun until they intend to fire it.
3. The safe conduct of shotgun shooting must meet the standards described in this code, show respect for the countryside, due regard to health and safety and consideration for others.
4. It is the loaders responsibility to alert the shoot captain of any breaches of safety that may arise.
5. Remember – ignorance of the law is no excuse. If in doubt, always ask.
