Conduct a Full Manufacturer/Importer Compliance Inspection to determine compliance with Federal firearms laws and regulations and applicable State, County or local laws and regulations. Complete required N-Spect fields. Verify compliance with zoning requirements. Check tax information on firearms manufactured and review FLS report with licensee for accuracy and completeness. Contact the FTB to determine if the licensee has any active marking variances on file. For Importers, verify any approved Form 6’s with the A & D records. For Manufacturers, determine that the licensee has submitted, as required, ATF Form 5300.11 containing all the required information annually. If the licensee has failed to submit, these should be submitted prior to closing out the inspection. Inform Licensee of his responsibility of registering for ITAR under the US State Department.
ATF Order 5370.1 C prescribes a warning conference as the minimum admin action for this inspection. However, I concur with the IOI and Acting A/S recommendations for a warning letter/no recall inspection because of (1) the extremely low volume of business activity (I.e. only redacted disposition and redacted firearm in inventory), (2) an absence of traces, trafficking indicators, thefts, or missing guns, and (3) the licensee's successful efforts to fully remedy the marking violations which triggered a warning conference. The business poses a low risk to public safety, and the investment of field resources to perform a recall Inspection is unlikely to impact public safety.
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.
