PROPER MAINTENANCE OF AUTOMATIC SAMPLING DEVICES

Proprietors of Distilled Spirits Plants and others concerned:

Purpose. This circular is issued to remind you of the provisions of section 201.249 of the distilled spirits regu- lations which are quoted, in part, below:

"...the proprietor shall install a mechanical device which will (a) permit such samples to be obtained without supervision, (b) accurately record or re- flect the total quantities of spirits removed, and (c) prevent access to the closed system without detection"

A recent special examination of such devices now installed in distilled spirits plants revealed that, in many instances, lack of proper maintenance had resulted in conditions which impaired the security of the devices. Although Internal Revenue Officers will, from time to time, examine such devices to determine their reliability, you are reminded that the primary responsibility for proper installation and maintenance of these devices rests with the proprietor.

Inquiries regarding this circular should refer to its number and be addressed to your Assistant Regional Commissioner, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax.
