Why is it necessary to provide new and additional information on responsible persons and employee possessors of explosives?

English | en Español

The law requires this information for ATF to conduct background checks on all responsible persons and employee possessors to restrict the availability of explosives to authorized persons only and to reduce the risk of prohibited persons acquiring explosive materials. [18 U.S.C. 843(h); 27 CFR 555.33, 555.45(c)]
