The Comptroller of the State of Maryland’s Field Enforcement Division notified the Distilled Spirits Council (the Council) that UNIMERC codes are no longer required for wholesalers, manufactures and shippers to register their products in the State of Maryland. We believe the effective date of this decision coincided with the start of the State of Maryland’s new fiscal year which began on July 1, 2017. Any recent requests received by the Council for UNIMERC codes will be promptly returned to the originator along with any related payments. If you have any questions regarding this notification, please contact our office at (202) 682-8868 or via email at (preferred method). 
For more information or questions regarding Maryland’s UNIMERC policy change, please contact the State of Maryland’s Field Enforcement Division at 410-260-7388. 
Thank you, 

There's no beverage of moderation, only the practice of moderation.
