The PLCB issued a release on March 23 stating it is temporarily and until further notice waiving the requirement for distributors and importing distributors to file monthly malt and brewed beverage reports through the PLCB+ website. We expect this temporary waiver will be removed once the Covid-19 situation is under control and the PLCB is back to running at or near full capacity.

It is recommended that distributors and importing distributors who are behind on their reports take advantage of this break to catch up on delinquent reports. As we previously reported, the PLCB has been making distributors (as well as breweries and others required to file reports) get current with the filing of all malt and brewed beverage reports back to 2017 prior to approving 2020 renewal/validation applications and that policy will likely continue once the waiver is lifted.
