Monthly reports reduction


Recommended Posts

Way back in 2013, we had received a letter stating there was going to be a reduction in the monthly reporting from the 3 forms, down to 1 simplified form. What ever happened to that?? With all of the governmental red tape reductions, this would be a great time for this to actually be able to happen!

As I recall, DISCUS got involved, objected to some provisions, wanted others changed, such as allowing for a 200 miles separation between discontinuous premises and other comments also objected.  You can read them all in the attached links.

Whatever happened, the proposal is no longer on the table.  It was withdrawn 02/26/2019.  See https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=TTB-2011-0010

If you want to see a copy of the simpler form that was hat was proposed, see https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=TTB-2011-0010-0005, where you can find a link to a pdf copy.

I'd point out that just about every change that TTB has made or propoxzsed, on its own initiative, in the last 20 years, has been a reduction in what is required. I'll also smilingly observe that bulk of the complexity of the regulations is the result of industry asking for a new or different standard.  Pogo's statement about who is the enemy applies.  Weigh the beer regulations against the wine and spirits regulations.  The beer regulations, in the most part, reflect core governmental concerns.  What is beyond that is industry driven.  

Anyway, TTB was ready and willing to make the change.  I think industry put the stake through its heart.
