Reporting by producers, wholesalers and importers
Producers, wholesalers and importers of alcoholic beverages and spirits are obligated to report the amounts of alcohol they have produced, sold and/or imported to the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health (Valvira) and register products in Valvira's product register before their placement on the market.
The reporting obligation also applies to licence holders that have not yet started operations. All information related to the operations of Valvira's licence holders must be reported using the e-service of the alcohol trade register (Allu).
The reported information will be used in the supervision of producers, wholesalers, serving licence holders and retailers by Valvira and the Regional State Administrative Agencies. The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) will use the information collected by Valvira to compile national alcohol statistics.
