Starting in early 2024, AGLC will no longer register alcohol containers with the BCMB on behalf of liquor agencies. Liquor agencies will be required to register new containers directly with the BCMB through our new registration portal that is currently being developed.
The amendments to the registration process for liquor agencies are needed to:
It will also allow liquor agencies to confirm a container’s eligibility in Alberta with the BCMB and ask questions about unique and novel containers.
The BCMB and AGLC will continue to provide information and updates leading up to, during and after the launch of the new system. Training on the new registration process will also be provided.
The BCMB will work closely with liquor agencies throughout the transition and afterward to support them in every way possible with this process change.
