All Explosives Licensees and Explosives Permittees and Others Concerned:

Purpose. This circular is issued to inform you that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms has scheduled a National Conference on Explosives to be held at the Bahia Hotel, in San Diego, California, May 19-21, 1981.

Background. A National Conference was held in September 1979. At that conference papers were presented by Federal agencies, State agencies, and industry associa- tions. The papers explained each group's role in explosives control. During workshops, all attendees participated to share their views and concerns. As a result of the discussions at the 1979 conference, a Federal Interagency Committee has been formed to work on the problems identified at the conference and serve as the medium to work for less confusion due to multiple agency regulations.

The Interagency Committee will participate in open discussions at the 1981 conference through sub-commit- tees which are working in various areas. Papers will be presented by agencies and industry associations dealing with current topics of interest to the industry.

Our purpose is to provide an open forum for the exchange of views and concerns by members of industry, State governments, and the various regulatory agencies. We hope that such a forum will promote continuing communi- cation among the attendees.

Contact. If you are interested in this endeavor and wish to attend, please call ATF TOLL FREE 800-424-9555, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EDT, for further information and reservations.
