Want to speed the process up?

Here are the most common things that slow down processing of COLAs Online and Formulas Online registration forms:

  • Permit number supplied is incorrect, pending approval or not in an active status – We will only grant access to COLAs Online and Formulas Online for permits that are in an active status.  In particular, you must wait until your permit is approved before you apply for access to these systems.
  • Problems receiving emails from TTB – If information is missing from your application, we will contact you and request that you send it to us.  We also send your username via email.  Please add to your safe-senders list to prevent our emails from being blocked by spam filters.
