SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

The OAS Model Regulations and the Firearms Convention require the government of importing States to issue an Import Certificate to the importer of firearms and the government of exporting States to issue licenses for the firearms.

This rule imposes two information collection requirements. The first requirement is the import certificate as support documentation for exports destined to Convention Signatories. The second requirement is the imposition of a licensing requirement for Firearms Convention items destined to Canada, a Convention Signatory. Previously, such items were exported to Canada without a license.

II. Method of Collection

Written notification and recordkeeping.
