TTB Newsletter for December 18, 2020

COVID-19 Special Edition


To provide continued flexibilities for industry members due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are extending the authorizations provided in TTB G 2020-1A through June 30, 2021.

In addition, we are updating this guidance to authorize the use of the additional formulas specified in current FDA guidance for the manufacture of hand sanitizer and denatured alcohol for use in hand sanitizer without first obtaining formula approval from TTB.  Any hand sanitizer or denatured alcohol for use in hand sanitizer produced in accordance with FDA guidance in effect as of the issue date of this guidance may be removed tax-free from a distilled spirits plant.

This updated guidance is redesignated as TTB G 2020-1B.

Please contact us if you have any questions about this guidance.
