To: All Bureau Supervisors.

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

2. Background. Under current regulations, the Director has authority to take final action on matters relating to procedure and administration. The Bureau has determined that certain of these authorities should, in the interest of efficiency, be delegated to a lower organizational level.

3. Cancellations. ATF O 1100.106A, Delegation Order—Delegation to the Associate Director (Compliance Operations) of Authorities of the Director in 27 CFR Part 295, Tobacco Products for the United States, dated 4/5/84, and ATF O 1130.24, Delegation Order—Delegation of Certain of the Director's Authorities in Subparts C and I of 27 CFR part 296, dated 9/27/01, are canceled.

4. Delegations. Under the authority vested in the Director, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, by Treasury Department Orders No. 120-01 (formerly 221), dated June 6, 1972, and 120-04 (formerly 221-4), dated December 5, 1978, and by 26 CFR 301.7701-9, this ATF order delegates certain authorities to take final action prescribed in 27 CFR Parts 45 and 46 to subordinate officials. Also, this ATF order prescribes the subordinate officials with whom applications, notices, and reports required by 27 CFR parts 45 and 46, 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.
