Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives




Section 27 CFR 468.94 requires the following for sales or deliveries of firearms between licensees:


"A licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or licensed dealer selling or otherwise disposing of firearms, and a

licensed collector selling or otherwise disposing of curios or relics, to another licensee shall verify the

identity and licensed status of the transferee prior to making the transaction. Verification shall be

established by the transferee furnishing to the transferor a certified copy of the transferee's license

and by such other means as transferor deems necessary:..."


This section of the regulations require a licensee to verify another licensee's status prior to making sales or

deliveries to such licensee. Please be advised that ATF will now recognize a faxed copy of a Federal firearms

license as an acceptable alternative form of verification.


ATF strongly suggest that FFLs utilize the FFLeZ Check system and verify the authenticity of the

transferee's license prior to shipping or disposing of a firearms(s) to another licensee.


In addition, verification and certification of a license is not considered valid unless a legible copy of the

transferee's license clearly identifies the name, address, license number and expiration date of the license.

Acceptance of blurred or illegible copies of a transferee's license may constitute noncompliance with



Finally, since all fax machines and settings differ, FFLs may need to fax with a fax resolution setting of fine,

super fine, or photo to ensure the fax copy of the license is legible.
