Start Preamble

To: All Bureau Supervisors.

1. Purpose. This order delegates certain authorities of the Director to subordinate ATF officers and prescribes the subordinate ATF officers with whom persons file documents which are not ATF forms.

2. Cancellation. ATF O 1100.96A, Delegation Order—Delegation to the Associate Director (Compliance Operations) of Authorities of the Director in 27 CFR part 18, Volatile Fruit-Flavor Concentrates, dated August 14, 1984, is canceled.

3. Background. Under current regulations, the Director has authority to take final action on matters relating to drawback on taxpaid distilled spirits used in manufacturing nonbeverage products and the production of volatile fruit-flavor concentrate. We have determined that certain of these authorities should, in the interest of efficiency, be delegated to a lower organizational level.

4. Delegations. Under the authority vested in the Director, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, by Treasury Order No. 120-1 (formerly 221), dated June 6, 1972, and by 26 CFR 301.7701-9, this ATF order delegates certain authorities to take final action prescribed in 27 CFR parts 17 and 18 to subordinate officials. Also, this ATF order prescribes the subordinate officials with whom applications, notices, and reports required by 27 CFR parts 17 and 18, which are not ATF forms, are filed. The following 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. An ATF organization chart showing the directorates involved in this delegation order has been attached.

5. Questions. If you have questions about this ATF order, contact the Regulations Division (202-927-8210).
