The Federal Alcohol Administration Act (FAA Act), at 27 U.S.C. 203, requires that a person apply for and receive a permit, known as a “basic permit,” to: (1) Import distilled spirits, wine, or malt beverages into the United States; (2) distill spirits or produce wine, rectify or blend distilled spirits or wine, or bottle and/or warehouse distilled spirits; or (3) purchase distilled spirits, wine, or malt beverages for resale at wholesale. The FAA Act, at 27 U.S.C. 204, also imposes certain requirements for basic permits and authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury (the Secretary) to prescribe the manner and form of all applications for basic permits. The TTB regulations in 27 CFR part 1 provide for the amendment of a basic permit using form TTB F 5100.18 when changes occur to the name, trade name, address, ownership, management, or control of the business. The collected information allows TTB to determine if applicants for amended basic permits meet the FAA Act’s statutory eligibility criteria to hold a basic permit.

There are no program changes associated with this collection, and TTB is submitting it for OMB approval only for extension purposes. As for adjustments, due to changes in agency estimates, TTB is increasing the number of annual respondents, responses, and burden hours associated with this collection. These increases are due to growth in the number of alcohol beverage businesses regulated by TTB under the FAA Act, which results in an increase in the number of basic permit holders and a corresponding increase in the number of respondents submitting applications for amended basic permits. Specifically, TTB is increasing the number of annual respondents and responses from 3,040 to 8,550 each, which results in an increase in the estimated total annual burden, from 1,170 to 3,278 hours. TTB notes that with the increased use of PONL by respondents, from 69 percent in 2017 to 75 percent currently, the average per-response time for this collection has dropped from 23.09 minutes to 22.5 minutes.
