ATF Rul. 2001-5

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has received numerous inquiries from
Federal firearms licensees (FFLs) regarding the acceptance of identification documents that do
not show the purchaser's current residence address. FFLs have asked whether they may accept
other documents, such as tax bills or vehicle registration documents, to establish the current
residence address of the purchaser.

It has been ATF's longstanding position that licensees may accept a combination of documents to
establish the identity of a firearm purchaser. ATF Rul. 79-7, ATFQB 79-1, 26, interpreted a
licensee's obligation to obtain satisfactory identification from a purchaser in the manner
customarily used in commercial transactions, pursuant to the existing regulations under the Gun
Control Act of 1968 (GCA). The ruling held that satisfactory identification of a firearms
purchaser must include the purchaser's name, age or date of birth, place of residence, and
signature. The ruling also held that while a particular document may not be sufficient to meet the
statutory requirement for identifying the purchaser, any combination of documents that together
disclosed the required information would be acceptable.
