Chemist Certification Program
TTB Procedure 2018-2 was approved in September 2018 and supersedes existing documents relating to the Chemist Certification program. The revision incorporates certification and eligibility guidelines for testing of beer, wine, and distilled spirits for exportation.
TTB offers a Chemist Certification Program for the export of beverage alcohol to foreign markets. Chemists in the private industry are certified to analyze specific tests as listed in TTB Procedure 2018-2. Many countries accept a report of analysis of alcohol beverages from a TTB-certified chemist accompanying the export shipment as a condition of entry.

We update the lists of certified chemists twice a year (spring and fall); the current lists are below.
