Denatured Alcohol and Rum Regulation Review

Solicitation of Comments

Washington--Pursuant to the President's regulatory reform initiative, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) is conducting a complete review of all Federal Government regulations relating to the distribution and use of denatured alcohol and rum. ATF believes that the regulations can be modernized and simplified since the last major revision in 1985.

ATF is issuing this advance notice to solicit comments on ways in which the regulations can be simplified so as to greatly reduce or eliminate unnecessary regulatory burdens on industry members, while continuing to provide adequate protection of the revenue.
