Federal Firearms Applications


BATFE Forms Processing

In accordance with the ATF Final Rule 41F which was effective July 13, 2016, the Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) certification is no longer required on following Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE):
  • ATF Form 1 (5320.1): Application to Make and Register a Firearm
  • ATF Form 4 (5320.4): Application for Tax Paid Transfer and Registration of a Firearm
  • ATF Form 5 (5320.5): Application for Tax Exempt Transfer and Registration of Firearm

Final Rule 41F replaces the CLEO certification with CLEO notification which requires that a completed copy of the Form 1, Form 4 and Form 5 applications, and the specified form for responsible persons (Form 5320.23), be forwarded to the CLEO of the locality in which the applicant/transferee or responsible person resides.
