The new TTB Permits Online System

Entity Records and Commodity Operations Records

Information in Permits Online is now organized in two different kinds of records; business entity records and commodity operations records. The entity record equates to a single company or business entity, represented by a unique Employer Identification Number (EIN). A commodity record is created for each TTB-regulated operation or permit, registration, or notice the entity is approved for.

Submit Multiple Amendments at One Time

In earlier versions of Permits Online you were limited to submitting one change (or amendment) at a time, and you had to wait until TTB acted on that amendment before submitting another.  While you’ll still have to wait for TTB to act before requesting additional changes, you may now submit multiple amendments at one time.

Auto-approval of Certain Amendments

Labeling trade name requests

Now, most labeling trade name amendments are automatically approved.  If the requested trade name passes certain system checks, your trade name amendment will be approved instantly*, otherwise, the amendment will get assigned to a TTB specialist to process.

Mailing address changes

Now, all mailing address changes are automatically approved upon submission of your amendment*.

*It may take up to 24 hours for these amendments to be reflected on your approval documents, but the amendments are considered approved when you receive the automated approval notification.

Key Contacts

Permits Online now requires that you designate at least one owner or officer of the business as a key contact. The purpose of having a key contact is to ensure that there is a person at the TTB-regulated business who has access to all Permits Online applications and records for their company, rather than just the application contact, who may or may not have a long-term relationship with the permitted entity.

Paper Filers Can use Permits Online

We’ve auto-transferred the records for previous applications that were submitted and approved on paper forms into the new entity and commodity record structure in Permits Online. With the exception of the few application types that cannot be filed through Permits Online, now most industry members are able to submit all new and amended applications for those businesses electronically using Permits Online.
