Treasury Reviewing Info Collections on Alcohol and Tobacco Products
The Treasury Department is inviting no later than Aug. 31 comments on the following information collections.
Form TTB F 5100.31, Application for and Certification/Exemption of Label/Bottle Approval - To provide consumers with adequate information as to the identity of alcohol beverage products and prevent consumer deception and unfair advertising practices, alcohol beverages sold or introduced into interstate or foreign commerce must be labeled in conformity with Treasury regulations. Further, the producer, bottler or importer of alcohol beverages must receive approval of the label for such products from TTB prior to their introduction into commerce. This form serves as both an application for and, if approved by TTB, a certificate of label approval (or exemption from a certificate of label approval).
Form TTB F 5220.6, Monthly Report - Importer of Tobacco Products or Processed Tobacco - Reports on the importation and disposition of tobacco products and processed tobacco are used, along with other information, to determine whether those persons issued the required permits are complying with TTB regulations. Those engaged in importing tobacco products and processed tobacco are required to account for the importation and disposition of such products on a monthly basis so TTB may determine if tobacco products or processed tobacco are being diverted for illegal purposes and to ensure that holders of basic permits are engaging in the operations stated on their basic permit.
