IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! We hope you had a fun and joy-filled week! This week's top stories include an announcement about the latest round of TTB chemist export analysis certifications, information about tools found on TTB.gov/ to help you learn how to stay compliant, and a list of the past week's top Scientific Services pages at TTB.gov/.


TTB ISSUES CHEMIST CERTIFICATIONS

TTB’s Beverage Alcohol Laboratory recently issued 22 certifications to chemists and enologists for the spring cycle of the Chemist Certification Program for the export of wines, distilled spirits, and beers to foreign markets.  TTB certification is for the sole purpose of authorizing individuals to analyze alcohol beverage products for export.  Many countries only allow the entry of shipments of alcohol beverages if they are accompanied by a report of analysis from a TTB-certified chemist.  The certification is open to chemists, enologists, and technicians engaged in the analysis of wines, distilled spirits, and/or beers for export.  Currently, 168 chemists/enologists at 81 laboratories are certified under the program. 

To learn more about the program, or to view the list of chemists certified to perform export analyses, visit our Chemist Certification Program Web page.

In order to maintain compliance in a TTB-regulated industry, you may need to meet ongoing requirements, such as filing reports and paying federal excise taxes.
