2017 Firearms Industry Compliance Takes Place in May—Register Now!

Co-hosted by Orchid Advisors and NSSF, the 2017 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference will take place May 8–10 in Arlington, Virginia. Now in its fourth year, this conference features industry experts discussing how to successfully navigate the intersection of legislation, regulation, and compliance with that of operations, logistics, and technology. The conference includes nearly 20 breakout sessions spread over three focus tracks, providing opportunities for all FFL types—as well as freight companies and second-tier suppliers—to join in the discussion of how to improve their business functionalities. Just a few of the many breakout session topics scheduled for this year include best-in-class laser and barcode scanning technology, serial number control, modern-day ERP systems, and supporting compliance tools. 

Attendees can also take part in one of three pre-conference workshops on the afternoon of May 8. Track A will be an NFA workshop, covering various forms, corrections, the National Firearm Registration and Transfer Record (NFRTR), and suppressor construct and marking. Track B delves into Best Practices in Retail Security, with an emphasis on risk assessment, cost of breach, preventive controls, detective controls, self-audit, insurance, and ATF interaction. Track C will focus on technologies for FFLs, such as point of sale and compliance and operational integration through e4473, eNICS, and eA&D.

The 2017 Firearms Industry Compliance Conference will take place at the Westin Arlington Gateway.
