Hartford, CT (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
Orchid Advisors today announced publication of “The Four Pillars of Firearm Compliance” by Orchid Advisors President & CEO Jon Rydberg. The book covers current ATF compliance requirements for firearm manufacturing, sales, and distribution in the United States.
According to Rydberg, “This book could not be published at a more important time. The firearms industry is the subject of intense debate, but little is being said about compliance under current regulations.”
Orchid Advisors specializes in compliance requirements for manufacturing in the firearms, defense, and aerospace industries. Rydberg is a subject matter expert in industries regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (“BATFE” or “ATF”), as well as those subject to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), the UK Bribery Act, International Trafficking in Arms (“ITAR”), and Sarbanes-Oxley.
“The Four Pillars of Firearm Compliance” provides operational strategies under The Gun Control Act of 1968 and various ATF rulings. The four pillars are:
- Firearm asset controls and physical security measures;
- Firearms marking controls;
- Firearms traceability controls; and,
- Licensing controls, public access and legal transfer processes, background checks and much more.
Rydberg, who has a proactive philosophy towards compliance, anticipates a significant increase in the demand for his services and that of his firm as Congress, the President, and various state governments debate new compliance requirements. Rydberg says, “It has never been more important for the firearms industry to know current compliance requirements and to stay abreast of additional, anticipated requirements. Any company that fails to do so could rapidly face a proceeding for the revocation of its federal firearms license.”
