OMB Control Number: 1513-0110.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Title: Recordkeeping for Tobacco Products Removed in Bond from a Manufacturer's Premises for Experimental Purposes—27 CFR 40.232(e).

Abstract: The Internal Revenue Code at 26 U.S.C. 5704(e) provides that manufacturers of tobacco products may remove tobacco products for experimental purposes without payment of Federal excise tax, as prescribed by regulation. Under that authority, the TTB regulations at 27 CFR 40.232(e) require the keeping of certain records regarding the shipment, description, use, and disposition of tobacco products removed for experimental purposes outside of the factory. Although the keeping of such records is a usual and customary business practice for manufacturers of tobacco products, these records provide TTB information that it uses to identify the lawful experimental use and disposition of nontaxpaid tobacco products, and to detect and prevent their diversion into the market.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1.

OMB Control Number: 1513-0111.

Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Title: COLAs Online Access Request.

Form: TTB F 5013.2.

Abstract: Respondents use this form to apply for access to TTB's COLAs Online system, which allows alcohol beverage industry members to electronically apply for a Certificate of Label Approval or for an exemption from label approval. TTB uses the provided information to identify the company on whose behalf the applicant claims to act, to verify the scope of the applicant's authority to act, and to evaluate the applicant's qualifications for access to the COLAs Online system before TTB issues that person a password allowing access to this TTB information system. This is necessary to protect the COLAs Online system from unauthorized users and other threats.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 900.
