International Trade Data System Test-Voluntary Export Pilot Project
Document Number: 2016-24639
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-10-12
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
Along with other agencies, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will participate in a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) pilot test of the International Trade Data System (ITDS), using electronic processing of export data through the Automated Export System (AES) which is accessed within CBP's Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). ACE, the primary system through which exporters transmit export data for the clearance of cargo, automates manual processes, eliminates paper, and helps exporters efficiently comply with laws and regulations. Exporters of National Firearms Act (NFA) firearms, which include machineguns, silencers and destructive devices, may use the ACE portal, to submit data via the AESDirect system. Participation in the pilot test is voluntary. The pilot test will allow participating exporters to submit forms, such as the ATF Form 9, Application and Permit for Permanent Exportation of Firearms, and information to CBP electronically to obtain CBP certification of exportation. CBP will validate that information, and electronically transmit export information to agencies (including ATF) to satisfy CBP's certification requirements. The pilot test seeks to streamline this part of the export process. Information on ATF's rules and regulations, and answers to commonly asked questions, can be found on the agency's Web site: http://www.atf.gov.

Commerce in Firearms and Explosives; Secure Gun Storage, Amended Definition of Antique Firearm, and Miscellaneous Amendments
Document Number: 2016-12364
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-05-26
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
The Department of Justice (DOJ) proposes amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), largely to codify into regulation certain provisions of Public Law 105-277, Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act, 1999. The proposed rule would amend ATF's regulations to account for the existing statutory requirement for applicants for firearms dealer licenses to certify that secure gun storage or safety devices will be available at any place where firearms are sold under the license to nonlicensed individuals. This certification is already included in the ATF Form 7, Application for Federal Firearms License. The proposed regulation would also require applicants for manufacturer or importer licenses to complete the certification if the licensee will have premises where firearms are sold to nonlicensees. Moreover, the proposed regulation would require that the secure gun storage or safety device be compatible with the firearms offered for sale by the licensee. Finally, it also would conform the definitions of certain terms to the statutory language set forth in the Omnibus Consolidated and Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act of 1999, including the definition of ``antique firearm,'' which would be amended to include certain modern muzzle loading firearms.

Machineguns, Destructive Devices and Certain Other Firearms; Background Checks for Responsible Persons of a Trust or Legal Entity With Respect To Making or Transferring a Firearm
Document Number: 2016-00192
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-15
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
The Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) regarding the making or transferring of a firearm under the National Firearms Act (NFA). This final rule defines the term ``responsible person,'' as used in reference to a trust, partnership, association, company, or corporation; requires responsible persons of such trusts or legal entities to complete a specified form and to submit photographs and fingerprints when the trust or legal entity files an application to make an NFA firearm or is listed as the transferee on an application to transfer an NFA firearm; requires that a copy of all applications to make or transfer a firearm, and the specified form for responsible persons, as applicable, be forwarded to the chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) of the locality in which the applicant/transferee or responsible person is located; and eliminates the requirement for a certification signed by the CLEO. These provisions provide a public safety benefit as they ensure that responsible persons undergo background checks. In addition, this final rule adds a new section to ATF's regulations to address the possession and transfer of firearms registered to a decedent. The new section clarifies that the executor, administrator, personal representative, or other person authorized under State law to dispose of property in an estate may possess a firearm registered to a decedent during the term of probate without such possession being treated as a ``transfer'' under the NFA. It also specifies that the transfer of the firearm to any beneficiary of the estate may be made on a tax-exempt basis.
Commerce in Firearms and Ammunition-Reporting Theft or Loss of Firearms in Transit (2007R-9P)
Document Number: 2016-00112
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-01-12
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
The Department of Justice is amending the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) concerning the statutory reporting requirement for firearms that have been stolen or lost. The final rule specifies that when a Federal firearms licensee (FFL) discovers a firearm it shipped was stolen or lost in transit, the transferor/sender FFL must report the theft or loss to ATF and to the appropriate local authorities within 48 hours of discovery. The rule also reduces an FFL's reporting burden when a theft or loss involves a firearm registered under the National Firearms Act (NFA) and ensures consistent reporting to ATF's NFA Branch. In addition, the rule specifies that transferor/sender FFLs must reflect the theft or loss of a firearm as a disposition entry in their required records not later than 7 days following discovery of the theft or loss; moreover, if an FFL reported the theft or loss of a firearm and later discovers its whereabouts, the FFL must advise ATF that the firearm has been located and must re-enter the firearm into its required records as an acquisition or disposition entry as appropriate.
