Document, "ATF FIELD OPERATIONS - FY2016 CODING GUIDELINES" p7: Recall investigations for final dispositions recommendations of DIO WC i/l/o/ Revocation, WC , WL , and ROV must be submitted to the AS in NSPECT within two years from the onsite end date of the assignment that generated the recall. The last compliance investigation resulted in a warning letter in lieu of a warning conference.
The licensee has been in business since 1980. This is the third compliance inspection to occur within the past five years. In 2011 the licensee was cited for four violations and issued a Report of Violations. In 2012 the licensee was cited for eight violations and attended a warning conference. In 2014 the licensee was cited for eight violations and received a warning letter. During the current examination the licensee was cited for seven violations and all are repetitive in nature. However, the number of instances compared to the volume of the licensee's business is very low. Only redacted instance of one repeat violation rises to the level of a warning conference. The licensee failed to conduct a new NICS check after 30 days had elapsed. Therefore, a warning letter and recall inspection is being recommended in lieu of a warning conference. On 09/29/2016 the DIO concurred with the alternate recommendation for a warning letter instead of a warning conference. On 09/30/2016 the warning letter was mailed via returned requested certified mail.
Concur with AS redacted recommendation to issue WL and schedule recall inspection within three years.
