Hearing Procedures Relating to Federal Firearms Licenses (2010R-2T)
Document Number: 2010-19740
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-08-10
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Bureau
In this notice, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) advises federal firearms licensees and other interested parties of its current procedures regarding administrative hearings held as part of firearms license proceedings. The intended purpose of the notice is to ensure that federal firearms licensees and persons applying for a federal firearms license are familiar with the hearing process relative to the denial, revocation, or suspension of a federal firearms license, or the imposition of a civil fine. This notice does not contain any policy guidelines as to whether a notice of denial, revocation, suspension or fine should be issued.
Elimination of Firearms Transaction Record, ATF Form 4473 (Low Volume) (2008R-21P)
Document Number: 2010-19273
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-08-05
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Bureau
The Department of Justice is proposing to amend the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) by eliminating the Firearms Transaction Record, ATF Form 4473 (Low Volume (LV)), Parts I and II. These forms may be used by federally licensed firearms dealers as an alternate record for the receipt and disposition of firearms. Because licensees rarely use Forms 4473 (LV), ATF has determined that continued use of these forms is unwarranted and they should be eliminated. The standard Form 4473, Firearms Transaction Record, is being retained. If the proposed rule is adopted, licensees will be required to use the standard Form 4473 for all dispositions and maintain a record of the acquisition and disposition of firearms in accordance with the regulations.
Implementation of the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005 Regarding Trafficking in Contraband Cigarettes or Smokeless Tobacco (2006R-1P)
Document Number: 2010-18552
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2010-07-28
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Bureau
The Department of Justice is proposing to amend the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to implement certain provisions of the USA PATRIOT Improvement and Reauthorization Act of 2005 (enacted March 9, 2006) relating to trafficking in contraband cigarettes or smokeless tobacco. The new law amends the Contraband Cigarette Trafficking Act by: reducing the threshold amount of cigarettes necessary to trigger jurisdiction under the CCTA from a quantity in excess of 60,000 to a quantity in excess of 10,000; extending the provisions of the CCTA to cover contraband smokeless tobacco; imposing reporting requirements on persons, except tribal governments, who engage in delivery sales of more than 10,000 cigarettes or 500 single-unit consumer-sized cans or packages of smokeless tobacco in a single month; requiring that cigarettes and smokeless tobacco seized and forfeited under the CCTA be either used in law enforcement operations or destroyed; and by authorizing state and local governments, and Federal tobacco permittees to bring civil causes of action against violators of the CCTA.

Decision-Making Authority Regarding the Denial, Suspension, or Revocation of a Federal Firearms License, or Imposition of a Civil Fine
Document Number: 2010-13392
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-06-03
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Bureau
The Department of Justice has adopted as final, without change, an interim rule that amended the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (``ATF'') to delegate to the Director of ATF the authority to serve as the deciding official regarding the denial, suspension, or revocation of federal firearms licenses, or the imposition of a civil fine. Under the interim rule, the Director has the flexibility to delegate to another ATF official the authority to decide a revocation or denial matter, or may exercise that authority himself. Because the Director can redelegate authority to take action as the final agency decision-maker to Headquarters officials, field officials, or some combination thereof, such flexibility allows ATF to more efficiently conduct denial, suspension, and revocation hearings, and make the determination whether to impose a civil fine. This gives the agency the ability to ensure consistency in

Commerce in Explosives-Storage of Shock Tube With Detonators (2005R-3P)
Document Number: 2010-891
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-01-20
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Bureau
The Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) by allowing shock tube to be stored with detonators because these materials when stored together do not pose a mass detonation hazard. Shock tube is a small diameter plastic laminate tube coated with a very thin layer of explosive material. When initiated, it transmits a low energy wave from one point to another. The outer surface of the tube remains intact during and after functioning.
Commerce in Explosives; List of Explosive Materials (2009R-18T)
Document Number: 2010-45
Type: Notice

Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives Bureau
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 841(d) and 27 CFR 555.23, the Department must publish and revise at least annually in the Federal Register a list of explosives determined to be within the coverage of 18 U.S.C. 841 et seq. The list covers not only explosives, but also blasting agents and detonators, all of which are defined as explosive materials in 18 U.S.C. 841(c). As a result of a recent court decision, ammonium perchlorate composite propellant (APCP) is no longer regulated under the Federal explosives laws. Therefore, APCP has been removed from the list of explosives. In addition, the Department is revising the list to include a parenthetical text after ``ammonium perchlorate explosive mixtures'' to clarify that this term excludes APCP. This notice publishes the 2009 List of Explosive Materials.
