producers currently holding COLAs (certification of label approval) for products labeled ice wine which do not meet the new guidelines are asked to surrender the original COLA to BATF's Alcohol Labeling and Formulation Division (ALFD
), and submit a new COLA application in duplicate with "ice wine" or equivalent terms removed.
