If you are a federal firearms licensee (FFL), it’s your job to comply with all of the ATF regulations that have come out of the Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968. ATF audits are a part of life for an FFL and the smoother the process goes, the better for everyone. You need to be at least as smart about ATF regulations as the IOI. Four resources that are handy to have at your finger tips are:
- International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR): The annual edition of the ITAR is published every April 1. Amendments between periods are published in the Federal Register and is the official record.
- Federal Explosives License: If your ammunitions are greater than 50 BMG you need this license.
- ATF National Firearms Act Handbook: This NFA Handbook is not available in a printed version, so you will want to be sure to download an electronic copy. This is not a law book, but a reference book for you to find answers to your questions quickly.
- Federal Firearms Regulations Reference Guide – 2014 Edition: This guide contains information to help you comply with Federal laws and regulations for FFLs.
When you rely on electronic ATF software like BASM’s Easy Bound Book™, you can feel confident that you have the processes in place to meet ATF regulations and ace your ATF audit.
