DE - Full Scope Compliance Inspection - Type 01.
The licensee’s failure to obtain complete or accurate information in the certification section on redacted and failure to record any ID on redacted warrants a Warning Conference; however, this is the licensee’s first inspection since the license. The licensee redacted a low volume of forms (20) during the inspection period. IOI redacted and redacted are recommending a Warning Letter only; instead of, a Warning Conference.
Licensee was cited for six (6) violations. The licensee's failure to obtain complete or accurate information in the certification section on redacted failure to record any ID on redactednd failure to initiate a new NICS check on redacted warrants a Warning Conference; however, this is the licensee’s first inspection since receiving the license. The licensee completed a low volume of forms (20) during the inspection period. Given that this is the licensee’s first compliance inspection, the ATF Investigator recommends a Warning Letter only and no recall inspection . Due to the lack of inspection history, I concur with the alternate recommendation of Warning Letter and No recall inspection. A detailed Warning Letter will serve to reinforce corrective actions already discussed by the ATF Investigator at the time of the inspection. UPDATE: Warning letter signed and sent, October 22, 2015.
Issuing a warning letter as an alternate recommendation to holding a warning conference is authorized. A recall inspection is not recommended. The licensee was cited for the failure to record any identification on 5% of the ATF Forms 4473s and the failure to properly complete 30% of the ATF Forms 4473 by not ensuring the purchaser signed and or dated Section A. Due to the licensee’s low volume of business, these two violations rise to the warning conference level. In addition the licensee failed to initiate a new background check after 30 days had expired before the transaction completed. Further the licensee failed to ensure the ATF Forms 4473s were properly completed in other areas of the forms. thC This is the first inspection for this licensee. The licensee is low volume. The failure to record any identification on one form and the failure to ensure the purchaser signed and or dated Section A redacted ATF Forms 4473s equals a warning conference as the minimum administrative action . The low number of instances, and the fact the violations were fully explained to the licensee during the closing conference is why a warning letter only is being authorized. The licensee's obligations were fully explained to him and holding a warning conference is not necessary to again restate the violations. It is believed the responsible person understands his obligations and will work to reduce the low number of violation instances even further in the future.
