Activity Compliance Period

XMS Systems Firearm Module Compliance Period Settings

To keep the SAPS happy, compliance requirements need to be satisfied every year.

  • Start and end
    This defines the activity year period for compliance
  • Min Association/Club Threshold
    This is the total number of “required” points then needs to be earned before any “non-expiring” points can be carried forward. This safeguards the association against members that, for example, stopped paying their annual subs when they reached the compliance level simply by being a member for long enough.

    As an example, if you have 3 activities worth 1 point each, that are required each year, you add “3” into this field. I only any 2 of the point are required, you enter “2” in the field. The Member details page will check how many points are required and how many have been assigned. If the threshold has been passed, all the previous year’s non-expiry points will automatically be pulled forward to this period.
  • Compliance Threshold
    This is the minimum number of points a member needs to hold in the current period to be compliant with the legislation. Amend this as required.

Compliance Activities

The compliance calculator works on the assumption the member will be adding their activities during the year. Each activity has a point value assigned to it.

As a minimum, a member can earn points by complying to the minimum as required by the SAPS. These could include a Declaration and confirmed membership of an association or club. These activities are added by the association's secretary and not “visible” to the member. To accommodate for this, we have 13 “admin only” activities that you can customise to suit your needs.

In the screenshot below, the “green pin” donates the item as an “Admin Only” activity. These activities will be displayed to the member on the form where they log/view their activities but they will not be able to select and add these themselves.

    The number of points the member will earn for this activity
  • Expire Annually
    If this is set to “No”, the points earned for this activity will be carried over to the next activity period
