of the FAA Act apply only to the extent that there is similar state law The FAA Act generally requires bottlers and importers of malt beverages to obtain a COLA in order to prevent the sale or other introduction of products that are bottled, packaged, or labeled in violation of law CBC | APRIL 2019 ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO TAX AND TRADE BUREAU | TTB 8 At What Stage do I Apply for Label Approval?
