What is RLPS?

Beginning January 22, 2018 we successfully launched the Regulatory Licensing and Permitting System (RLPS) allowing the agency to efficiently process licenses and permits. Please use the information on this page and the document linked below as a required information reference when applying for or renewing a license or permit in RLPS.

Important Dates:

  • August 1,2019 – Per TCA § 57-3-818(c), an amendment is no longer required to inform the TABC of changes to the Certified Clerks List.  Instead, each Retail Food Store and Retail Package Store shall be required to maintain and annually file a Certified Clerks List upon renewal of their license.

How you can help:

  • During your first renewal with RLPS, please do not initiate the renewal application process until after TABC staff has visited your establishment to complete your inspection (TABC agents and regulatory officers will provide information related to RLPS during your normally-scheduled renewal inspection which will occur within 60 days of your expiration date).
  • All individual owner information, including information previously collected on TABC questionnaires and declarations of citizenship, must be submitted in RLPS for new and first year renewal applications (Please see the attached document for acceptable forms of ID). Failure to provide complete ownership information may impact the renewal or issuance of your license.
  • Please open the document linked below and begin gathering all required information, in electronic format, for your RLPS account.
  • Because there is no existing license or permit data in RLPS, licensees will be required to submit all documentation outlined in the linked document below for renewal during the first year of RLPS.
