The Listing Manual is a set of guidelines for suppliers and brokers of alcoholic liquor to get their products approved for sale in Iowa. It is important for suppliers and brokers to follow the guidelines in the listing manual for both new and existing products.

Failure to do so may lead to a product not being approved for sale in Iowa or the imposition of special handling charges.

This manual contains six sections:

  • Section 1 provides an overview of the steps a supplier must take before submitting a listing request for a product.  
  • Section 2 provides details on the listing process. 
  • Section 3 provides information on how suppliers can ensure they are properly managing their inventory within the warehouse.  
  • Section 4 describes how products are delisted and removed from the warehouse. 
  • Section 5 provides an overview of how the bailment process works, which is how suppliers are paid for inventory sold.  
  • Section 6 addresses the specific requirements for shipment of product to the warehouse.
