Revisions to Approved Formulas

TTB understands that changes to approved formulas may occur. Use the following guidelines when submitting revisions to approved formulas.

A revised formula is needed when:

  • Ingredients are added or removed from an article.
  • The quantity of one or more ingredient is changed beyond +/-5%, or if the formula was approved by TTB with restrictions.
  • A color or dye is changed that was originally identified by its specific color.
  • Switching from one denaturant to another denaturant to manufacture the same article*.

A revised formula is not needed when:

  • Only the name of an article is changed without any change in composition to the article.
  • The product number of an article is changed.
  • A color or dye is changed that was not originally identified by its specific color.
  • The size of the commercial package is changed, unless it was approved by TTB with size restrictions.
  • When changing from one brand name of an ingredient to another brand name of the same ingredient.

* Some exceptions do exist. Please contact the Nonbeverage Products Laboratory for additional assistance.
