ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES DIVISION[185]

Adopted and Filed

Pursuant to the authority of Iowa Code section 123.21, the Alcoholic Beverages Division hereby amends Chapter 16, "Trade Practices," Iowa Administrative Code.

This amendment strikes Chapter 16 as it currently appears, reorganizes the existing rules in Chapter 16 into Parts I to VII, and renumbers the rules accordingly. The restructuring is similar to the arrangement of the federal regulations that relate to transactions between industry members and retailers. Language contained within each rule remains the same; however, when another rule is cross-referenced within a rule, the new rule number is used for the cross reference. Subsequent rule making will amend obsolete dates and rules not addressed in this rule making.

Additionally, the following changes are incorporated:

A preamble is added to Chapter 16 to identify the purpose and the persons governed by the chapter.

A preamble is added to Part I introducing definitions.

Definitions within Part I are arranged in alphabetical order, subrule references for each definition are removed, and the format for each definition is standardized.

A preamble is added to Parts II, III, IV, V, and VI to identify the purpose and the persons governed by the rules within each part.

Rules in Parts II, III, IV, V, VI, and VII are reserved to provide for future expansion.

The rescinded subrule in renumbered rule 185—16.41(123), contained within Part III, is reserved.

A preamble is added to Part VII concerning violations of Chapter 16.

The amendment organizes and renumbers the rules in Chapter 16 as follows:
