Amendments to the Regulations Regarding the Electronic Submission of Forms, the Finished Products Records for Distilled Spirits Plants, and Closures on Certain Distilled Spirits Products

Docket ID: TTB-2014-0004
Agency: Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB)
Parent Agency: Department of the Treasury (TREAS)
In this direct final rule, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) will remove the burdensome requirement that requires all distilled spirits plant proprietors to maintain a daily summary and daily records as to the kind of distilled spirits that they bottle or package. The distilled spirits industry has had difficulties complying with this requirement, located at 27 CFR 19.601. This requirement is costly and time-consuming for industry, is not useful to industry, and TTB has received correspondence asking that the Bureau do away with it. Therefore, TTB has decided to remove the new requirement in 27 CFR 19.601. Also included in this direct final rule, TTB is changing the Bureau's regulations regarding administrative practices and the acceptance of electronic filing of forms.
