Standardization & Training Committee

The Association of Firearms and Toolmark Examiners (AFTE), was formed in 1969 exclusively for charitable, scientific, educational, and testing for public safety purposes; and to improve and elevate the quality, integrity, and public image of the scientific crime laboratories within the meaning of Section 501(c)3, Internal Revenue Code of 1954.

To accomplish these purposes, the members of this Association pledge themselves to the following objectives:

A. To conduct and sponsor seminars involving the theory and practice of firearm and toolmark examination and its related subjects.
B. To foster the exchange of information between scientific crime laboratories on the improvement and standardization of the development of firearm and toolmark identification and techniques.
C. To publish and issue to members a journal covering the latest developments in firearm and toolmark examination.
D. To make unrestricted gifts to universities and those who are listed in the United States Internal Revenue Service Cumulative List.
E. To engage in the testing of firearms, components, ammunition, and examiners for the benefit of public safety.
F. To respond to requests from courts, judicial tribunals, executive and legislative branches of the government for the names of qualified expert witnesses in the field of firearm and toolmark identification.
