“How do I stay informed about the issues and events at TTB that matter most to me?”


Staying current is easy with TTB's free and secure e-mail subscription service, designed to keep you informed of news, rulemakings, upcoming seminars or workshops, and other developments at TTB.

So how does it work?

TTB's e-mail subscription management service monitors designated Web site content and sends you an e-mail to alert you that new information is posted on TTB.gov.  Subscription options also include TTB's public information news sources such as newsletters, guidance, news releases, rulings, enforcement actions, and seminar and training opportunities.  And TTB e-mail updates allow you to:

  • Choose your subscription preferences;
  • Add or delete subscription items themselves;
  • Password protect your account for increased security; and
  • Opt to have TTB Updates sent immediately, daily, weekly, or monthly to your e-mail account, or directly to a wireless device.

To start receiving your update e-mails from TTB (from the address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), all we need is a valid e-mail address and an optional password; these are required if you want to subscribe to content updates by e-mail.  Most updates also include a link to a web page, so a web browser is also recommended.
