NOTICE OF REVISION OF "CONDITIONS FOR APPROVING LABELS" ON FORM 1649, APPLICATION FOR AND CERTIFICATION OF LABEL APPROVAL, UNDER THE FEDERAL ALCOHOL ADMINISTRATION ACT.

Proprietors of Bonded Wine Cellars, Taxpaid Wine Bottling Houses, Importers of Wines and to others concerned:

The purpose of this Industry Circular is to advise you of a forthcoming change in the "Conditions" on the certificate of label approval, Form 1649, with respect to wine labels.

Authorization to Change Statements of Alcoholic Content on Wine Labels

Form 1649, as thus revised, will permit a change in the statement of alcoholic content on wine labels without submission of the labels for reapproval if such change does not result in a change in the taxable grade of the wine, and if such change will be within the alcoholic content limitations prescribed by regulations for the class and type of the wine involved.

Effective Date

This change shall become effective upon the issuance of the new forms. All certificates of label approval issued prior thereto, as well as those issued thereafter on the old form, may be considered as including the authority to make the indicated changes in the statement of alcoholic content.

Inquiries

Inquiries with respect to this circular should be addressed to the Director, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Division, Internal Revenue Service, Washington, D. C., 20224, Attention: CP:AT:B.
