COLAs Online – New Features
October 28, 2016
By Kristin Carlton, Vice President of Compliance
On September 23, 2016, the TTB released COLAs Online version 3.12.4. COLAs Online is the online system for applying for a COLA (certificate of label approval, certificate of exemption from label approval, and distinctive liquor bottle approval) with the TTB.
Three main areas changed with this release include:
- Removal of some data fields,
- New dropdown menus for selecting domestic appellations of origin for wines, and
- Redesign of the formulas section.
These changes are part of a larger plan to reduce the amount of time it takes to obtain label approval from TTB. By decreasing the amount of information we require you to submit and adding tools to assist you with the accuracy of the information you supply, we are lowering the chances that we will have to send your application back for correction.
