CONDUCT DE RECALL COMPLIANCE INSPECTION UTILIZING GUIDELINES SET FORTH IN THE IOI MANUAL.
As a result of a DE Recall Compliance Inspection, a report of violations was issued for violation of 27 CFR 478.124(c)(1) REPEAT, 27 CFR 478.125(e) REPEAT, 27 CFR 478.124(c)(4) REPEAT, 27 CFR 478.124(c)(3)(i) REPEAT, 27 CFR 478.21(a) REPEAT, 27 CFR 478.124(c)(5) REPEAT, 27 CFR 478.126a, 27 CFR 478.129(b), and 27 CFR 478.124(a). The licensee was issued a Warning Letter alternate to holding a Warning Conference as a result of his previous inspection and could be subject to a Warning Conference as a result of failing to execute a Form 4473 on redacted occasion which was non-repetitive from the current inspection. The licensee was cited for administrative F4473 errors on redacted forms reviewed which represented a 3% error rate. This was an improvement from a 79% error rate from the last inspection. The licensee failed to properly record an acquisition/ disposition on redacted occasions which represented less than a 4% error rate relative to dispositions. This was an improvement from a 100% error rate from the last inspection. The licensee was extremely cooperative during the inspection, is planning on his son applying to take over the license due to his health and age, there were no missing firearms, and has had redacted trace activity related to his license in the last year. Due to the above facts and significant improvement in compliance, it is recommended that a Warning Letter be issued with NO recall inspection alternate to holding a Warning Conference.
The Recall compliance investigation has disclosed 9 violations, 6 of them repeated (i.e., redacted unrecorded disposition ; redacted deficient F 4473s ), and although the repeat violations incidence is less than in the prior compliance investigation, however, the 3 new violations (e.g., redacted unreported MS involving redacted HGs; failure to retain a denial F 4473), including a failure to execute a F 4473, would merit a WC . In light of the fact that there are more violations found this time as opposed to in the previous compliance investigation (8), the policy AA of a WC is deemed appropriate to address the violations.
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. More details on the nature of the licensee's specific violations may be found in the report PDF.
