Violations, Warning Conference with Warning Letter and Recall Inspection .
Field inspection performed 04/12/16; the licensee was issued an amended ROV on 06/21/16 for nine recordkeeping/reporting violations, a single conduct of business and a single instance administrative violation. Although the licensee's (a.) failure to timely/correctly record all required acquisition and disposition entry information within their A&D Record, and (b.) failure to obtain complete and accurate 4473 certification information merits a Warning Conference by policy, it is alternatively recommended that the licensee receive the Warning Letter only for the following reasons: (1.) the licensee immediately reconciled all identified A&D Record discrepancies; (2.) 100% of the A&D acquisition errors and 64% of the disposition errors involve FFL transferor and FFL transferee info being incorrectly recorded as "on file”; and (3.) the licensee's absence of any compliance history. With DIO concurrence, a Warning Letter was generated and sent to the licensee (via certified post with return receipt) on 06/28/16. No further field action required at this time.
I concur with the Area Supervisor’s alternate recommendation of Warning Letter only.
If an inspection uncovers regulatory violations, the licensee receives a report outlining these violations.
