Also, this ATF order prescribes the subordinate officials with whom applications, notices, and reports required by 27 CFR Parts 20, 21 and 22, which are not ATF forms, are filed. The attached table identifies the regulatory sections, authorities and documents to be filed, and the authorized ATF officials. The authorities in the table may not be redelegated.
