ATF FFL eZ Check
FFL eZ Check integration quickly and easily fills and verifies that a Federal Firearms License (FFL) is correct, valid, and current
The contact manager in FastBound integrates with the ATF FFL EZ Check system to make the verification of an FFL number fast, secure, and error-free. When you view any FFL contact in FastBound, you can quickly verify an FFL in real time.
You can create new licensee contact in FastBound by entering just their FFL number, and all details are filled in from the ATF FFL EZ check database, saving you more time and even further reducing the chance of recording errors in your A&D records.
A common source of violations is entering an expired FFL license number. If you enter an expired FFL number, FastBound will automatically look up the non-expired number and suggest it to you.
What is FFL eZ Check?
FFL eZ Check is a tool provided by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) for easily checking whether or not an FFL license is valid and verifying the shipping information. This is vital for an FFL dealer or any person performing a firearm transfer of any kind.
This is also an easy way to avoid scams or fraud when completing a transaction with a gun. However, eZ Check should not be used as a background check.
When to Use FFL eZ Check
Whether you are a manufacturer, dealer, or a home FFL holder, you should use eZ Check for every transaction. If you are sending a personal firearm to an FFL holder and are not a licensee yourself, you can still use this free tool. Even if you have sent to this FFL holder many times before, you should still check to see if their license is still valid every time. You never know when an FFL could have been revoked by the ATF, so to avoid a fraudulent transaction, use eZ Check.
If you don’t want to have to check every time or think you might forget, FastBound has you covered. Our system automatically integrates with ATF eZ Check to make sure the information entered is still valid. This saves you time and potential legal trouble if you were to accidentally send to someone without a valid FFL.
