I am an employee possessor on “Company A’s” fireworks license. I also conduct unrelated fireworks activities as a hobby. Do my hobby activities have any potential effects on that company or my employee possessor status?

ATF is unable to provide you with specific advice without receiving more information on your activities. Generally, your employee possessor status would not be affected unless you were no longer employed by “Company A,” or you fell within a prohibiting category listed on ATF Form 5400.28, Employee Possessor Questionnaire. Generally, “Company A” would not be responsible for your off-site fireworks hobby activities.

You can submit additional information regarding specific questions to ATF’s Explosives Industry Programs Branch at:
