Food and Beverage Alert: TTB Appoints New Director of International Affairs Division and Issues Organizational Chart

By Jay Leonard

Earlier this month, the TTB appointed Karen Welch as the New Director of the International Affairs Division (IAD). The IAD’s Mission includes facilitating the import and export trade of alcoholic beverages in the United States. If you export internationally, there is a good chance you have interacted with the IAD and should make note of its guidelines and certification program on importing and exporting alcoholic beverages. The TTB also reminded industry members that its organizational chart is available on the TTB website. It is worth the time to review the interactive chart to become familiar with the TTB structure and key contact points for various issues.
