New Federal Register Action: Licensing Questionnaire—ATF Form 8620.44

May 29, 2024

Action: 30-Day Notice

Purpose: The Licensing Questionnaire (ATF F 8620.44) is used to determine if a candidate for federal or contractor employment at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or his/her spouse or minor child, holds a financial interest in the alcohol, tobacco, firearms and/or explosives regulated industries, which may be in conflict with 5 CFR 3801, Supplemental Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Department of Justice. The proposed information collection (OMB 1140– 0113) is being revised to make minor material changes to the form, such as removing the declination statement and signature/date fields and include a note clarifying that personal ownership of a firearm and a permit/license to carry a firearm are not considered holding a Federal Firearms License.
