Wineries outside of New York State: In order to conform to reciprocity laws, we have been issued licenses from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (#NY-I-15473), IRS (#22-232-695-400), The NY State Liquor Authority (#E528822) and the FDA registration (#10728385666), and are in compliance with the laws for shipping.
All wineries outside the United States: You will need to register with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to obtain a "FURLS" (Electronic Registration & Listing System) number which, in turn, must be used to clear U.S. Customs and allow the wine to enter the country, whether for sale or for competition purposes. This process is FREE OF CHARGE and may be completed online at the FDA website (link from the FURLS headline in the left margin). The agency simply needs this information to locate and interview company principals if there is ever a question of possible contamination of the product. Compliance with this new legislation is required by U.S. law. Be sure the company information in your FDA/FURLS application matches the information on your competition entry.
Be certain that your broker/importer or customs agent is working in compliance with the Bioterrorism Act to obtain and use your FDA "FURLS" number on all documentation related to importing your wine and sending it to our consolidation points. If you need assistance obtaining a U.S. FDA "FURLS" number, please contact Karl Rudolfs for assistance.
BROKER AND CUSTOMS FEES:
Please note that all customs or broker fees for any delivery or transit of wine to the consolidation point (Camp Good Days and Special Times, c/o Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, Mendon, NY) must be paid by the winery or their designated agent; otherwise, wines may be returned or refused. FLIWC is NOT responsible for any fees related to OUTSTANDING CHARGES, CUSTOMS DUTIES OR SHIPPING FEES to the consolidation points.
