Modernization of Permit and Registration Application Requirements for Distilled Spirits Plants (21 page(s), in English)

Notice of proposed rulemaking - In this notice of proposed rulemaking, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) proposes deregulatory amendments to the regulations to modernize and streamline the permit application for distilled spirits plants and for users and dealers of specially denatured alcohol and tax-free alcohol. The proposed amendments also relax some reporting requirements associated with changes to the business of those holding such permits and registrations. Some of these proposed liberalizing amendments would also apply to all Federal Alcohol Administration Act basic permit holders (including wineries, and importers and wholesalers of distilled spirits, wine, and malt beverages) and to alcohol beverage dealers. The proposed amendments are a result of TTB's evaluation of its permit and registration application requirements and consideration of relevant public comments submitted to the Treasury Department in response to its request for recommendations concerning regulations that can be eliminated, modified, or streamlined in order to reduce burdens. TTB believes the amendments proposed in this document will significantly reduce the time needed to complete an application for a permit or registration.
