5 violations, ROV , AS Warning Letter and no Recall Inspection
John Paul Blevins 1-62-163-01-9E-21463 9/27/2016 redacted This is the first compliance investigation that this FFL has had. This FFL has had redacted aquisitons and dispositions. Due to the low number of transfers the eror rate was high which would warrant a Warning Conference. However, IOI redacted recommends a Warning Letter which I concur with.
The licensee's violations warrant a warning conference dut to the high error rate. However, this was this licensee's first compliance investigation, and he only had redacted aquisitons and dispositions. Due to the low number of transactions, the error rate was high. The high error rate warrants a Warning Conference. However, the IOI believes that this licensee now understands the violations, why they occurred, and that he will ensure that they are not repeated in the future. Therefore, I concur with the alternate recommendation of Warning Letter and No Recall Inspection .
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations. This section lists the violations found in the inspection, as well as a general description of each offense.
