Requirements for Medium or Large Alcohol Fuel Plant Operations

        

TTB has approved your application as a medium or a large alcohol fuel plant (AFP). If it is required by your state, you should forward a copy of your permit to the appropriate state agency. You should also keep your permit and application on file at the permitted premises and available for examination by TTB officials.  For more information about requirements, including the life of an AFP permit, visit our Alcohol Fuel page.

As a permit holder, there are several federal laws and regulations you are required to meet, that include the following processes:

  • Gauging distilled spirits
  • Taking inventories
  • Maintaining records of your operations
  • Filing reports

You must notify us immediately of any change in name, address, ownership, management, or control of the business.

Medium Plants

You must notify us immediately if you intend to increase your production or receipts to a level in excess of 500,000—or decrease to a level of 10,000 or less—proof gallons of spirits per calendar year.

Large Plants 

You must notify us immediately if you intend to decrease your production or receipts to a level of 500,000 or below proof gallons of spirits per calendar year.
