Import/Export Conference


REGISTER NOW! 13th Annual Firearms Import/Export Conference

It can be a challenge to stay on top of the myriad federal laws and regulations that govern the import and export of firearms and related products. Compliance, however, is critical to keeping your business operating.

To help federal firearms license holders and other members of industry, a joint presentation of the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the FAIR Trade Group will take place Aug. 5-6 at the Renaissance Washington, D.C., Downtown, 999 Ninth St., NW.

This year we are excited to announce a morning of round-table sessions with ATF, including Imports Branch, National Firearms Act Branch, Firearms Technology Branch, Firearms Industry Programs Branch, eForms and Compliance, as well as Customs and Border Protection, Treasury’s Tax and Trade Bureau, and Census Bureau’s Automated Export System.  

The conference will also feature presentations from ATF, an update on the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, and State Department speakers covering policy updates, enforcement trends, compliance, commercial export policies and brokering licenses, among other topics.

For those new to Import and Export, we are also offering an optional add-on session, “ATF and Export 101.”
