On June 12, 2012, the TTB announced that a copy of the organic certificate is no longer required to accompany any Certificate of Label Approval (COLA) application for alcohol beverages labeled as “100% Organic,” “Organic,” and “Made with Organic (specific ingredients).” You are now only required to submit a copy of the approved label with the “CCOF approved” stamp, along with your COLA application. Remember that CCOF must approve all new labels and formulas for your products, including all vintage changes.
If your product only identifies organic contents in an ingredient statement, you are still required to submit organic certificates for each ingredient identified as organic. View the TTB announcement.
