Subject: [blastserve] ATF Requirement for Notification of Storage of Explosives -
From: Dean <>
To: "International Society of Explosives Engineers"
X-Loop-Detect: 1

Currently, BATF is soliciting comments concerning Notification to the Fire
Marshal and Chief, Law Enforcement Officer of Storage of Explosive

ATF now requires all persons who store explosives to notify local law
enforcement officials and fire departments orally before the end of the day
on which the storage of the explosive materials commenced and in writing
within 48 hours from the time such storage commenced. The information is
necessary for the safety of emergency response personnel responding to fires
at sites where explosives are stored.

The Department of the Treasury, as part of its continuing effort to reduce
paperwork has asked for comments on proposed and/or continuing information
collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.

Please submit written comments to Jeff Dean at ISEE at by
December 1 so that we can incorporate them into our comments to ATF.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
