Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) on Friday published a new Final Rule that, effective April 8, 2014, extends the standard term of import permits for firearms, ammunition and defense articles from one year to two years.

The additional time will allow importers sufficient time to complete the importation of the authorized commodity.

In addition, it will eliminate the need for the importer to submit a new import application, ATF Form 6, where the importation was not completed within the one-year period.

ATF Extending Term Of Import Permits To Two Years

NSSF supported this change because it will significantly benefit both ATF and U.S. importers without reducing ATF’s ability to administer the 27 CFR part 447 regulations and to ensure that importers are in compliance with the law.
