ANNOUNCING UPDATED PASSWORD CHANGE PROCESS FOR COLAS AND FORMULAS ONLINE

On Wednesday, September 2, 2015, we will introduce a new password change process for users of COLAs Online and Formulas Online, our electronic filing systems for alcohol label and formula approval respectively.

Under the new process when you attempt to change or reset your existing password, a security code will automatically be sent to your TTB-registered email account.  You must utilize this security code in order to authenticate your identity and complete the password change process.

REQUEST FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS TO COMPILE THE NATIONAL TRADE ESTIMATE REPORT ON FOREIGN TRADE BARRIERS

SOURCE: Federal Register /Vol. 80, No. 160 /Wednesday, August 19, 2015

AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.

ACTION: Notice.

SUMMARY: Pursuant to section 181 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (19 U.S.C. 2241), the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) is required to publish annually the National Trade Estimate Report on Foreign Trade Barriers (NTE). With this notice, the Trade Policy Staff Committee (TPSC) is requesting interested persons to submit comments to assist it in identifying significant barriers to U.S. exports of goods, services, and U.S. foreign direct investment for inclusion in the NTE. The TPSC invites written comments from the public on issues that USTR should examine in preparing the NTE.

Section 1377 of the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 (19 U.S.C. 3106) (‘‘Section 1377’’) requires the USTR to review annually the operation and effectiveness of all U.S. trade agreements regarding telecommunications products and services that are in force with respect to the United States. In past years, USTR has solicited comments with regard to Section 1377 in a separate Federal Register Notice. In 2016, USTR is collecting information regarding the trade barriers pertinent to the conduct of the review called for in Section 1377 through this notice.

DATES: Public comments are due not later than 11:59 p.m., October 28, 2015.
