HEAD

    Sec. 846. Additional powers of the Attorney General

STATUTE

      (a) The Attorney General is authorized to inspect the site of any
    accident, or fire, in which there is reason to believe that
    explosive materials were involved, in order that if any such
    incident has been brought about by accidental means, precautions
    may be taken to prevent similar accidents from occurring. In order
    to carry out the purpose of this subsection, the Attorney General
    is authorized to enter into or upon any property where explosive
    materials have been used, are suspected of having been used, or
    have been found in an otherwise unauthorized location. Nothing in
    this chapter shall be construed as modifying or otherwise affecting
    in any way the investigative authority of any other Federal agency.
    In addition to any other investigatory authority they have with
    respect to violations of provisions of this chapter, the Federal
    Bureau of Investigation, together with the Bureau of Alcohol,
    Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, shall have authority to conduct
    investigations with respect to violations of subsection (d), (e),
    (f), (g), (h), or (i) of section 844 of this title.
      (b) The Attorney General is authorized to establish a national
    repository of information on incidents involving arson and the
    suspected criminal misuse of explosives. All Federal agencies
    having information concerning such incidents shall report the
    information to the Attorney General pursuant to such regulations as
    deemed necessary to carry out the provisions of this subsection.
    The repository shall also contain information on incidents
    voluntarily reported to the Attorney General by State and local
    authorities.
