Need for Collection
The Firearms & Explosives Services Division (FESD) provides dealer licensing and other services related to the importation and transfers of weapons within the firearms and explosives industry. This anonymous survey would allow FESD to gauge customer satisfaction and correct potential deficiencies. Internal audits have demonstrated the need for a division level survey to enhance greater customer satisfaction.
(5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated
for an average respondent to respond: The number of respondents cannot be determined because a survey has not been done before. It is estimated that respondents will take five minutes to complete the online survey.
(6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The total public burden cannot be estimated as the survey is voluntary and the number of respondents cannot be determined.
