Illinois State Police Director Files Emergency Rules Regarding FOID and CCL Renewals

Springfield, IL – The Illinois State Police filed emergency rules this week to address renewals of Firearm
Owner Identification and Concealed Carry Licenses during the COVID-19 epidemic.
These rules are designed to provide FOID card holders and CCL relief from the renewal requirements
during the effects of COVID-19 pandemic.

These rule changes are as follows:
 FOID card holders, who submit their renewal application will remain valid during the duration of
the state’s disaster proclamation and for a period of 12 months following the termination of the
disaster, even if their renewal application is/was not submitted prior to expiration.
 CCL licensees, who submit their renewal application, will remain valid during the duration of the
state’s disaster proclamation and for a period of 12 months following its termination, even if their
CCL renewal application was not submitted prior to expiration.
 CCL licensees will not be required to immediately submit proof of three-hour training with their
CCL renewal application.
 CCL licensees will need to submit proof of their three-hour renewal training within 12 months
following the termination of the state’s disaster proclamation in order to maintain the validity of
their CCL license.

ISP will continue to enforce both FOID and CCL prohibitors. FOID card holders who receive
revocation notices shall return their FOID and Firearm Disposition Record form to the Illinois State
Police. CCL holders who receive revocation notices shall return their CCL license to the Illinois State
Police.

These new rules are effective immediately.
