TTB Operations Impacted Amid U.S. Government Shutdown

By January 22, 2019Top News

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) remains closed while the U.S. federal government’s shutdown continue. The agency created a temporary landing page on its website stating alcohol companies can still access the TTB site to make payments, submit labels or formulas, and to file other operational reports. “TTB will suspend all non-excepted TTB operations, and no personnel will be available to respond to any inquiries, including emails, telephone calls, facsimiles, or other communications,” a statement read. “Once funding has been restored and the government shutdown is over, we will work to restore regular service as soon as possible.” Label and permit issuance have halted entirely. Brewers, wineries and distilleries as well as allied businesses that support them are feeling the impact as the shutdown continues now in its 32nd day.
