Reading the Chart

  • Application Type: We list the processing times for label applications by commodity, i.e., distilled spirits, malt beverages, and wine.
  • Average Label Processing Time (Calendar Days): This column gives the average number of days it takes to process your application, from the time we receive it until we either approve or reject it. This includes any time spent sending electronic applications back and forth for correction.
  • Today We are Processing New Applications Received On: We have not reviewed any applications received after the date in this column. If you call us about an application originally submitted after the date posted in the chart, we won't have any information about the status of your application.

Need a Status Check?

  • Remember: If you file through COLAs Online, it's as easy as logging into your COLAs Online account – available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – to check on the status of your application.
