Purpose and application of rules.









(1) The liquor control board regulates alcohol advertising to promote public safety, prevent the misuse of alcohol and reduce youth exposure to alcohol advertising and marketing. These rules provide reasonable regulations as to the kind, character, size, and location of advertising of liquor, as authorized by RCW 66.08.060.
(2) No person engaged in business as a manufacturer, importer, distributor, or retailer of liquor shall publish or disseminate in any media any advertisement of liquor, unless such advertisement is in conformance with these rules.
(3) The board holds each manufacturer, importer, distributor, or retailer of liquor responsible for complying with the advertising rules of the Washington state liquor control board in any advertising material placed by them or on their behalf by their agents. If desired, advertising may be submitted prior to publication for an advisory opinion by the Washington state liquor control board, but advisory opinions will be restricted to advertising material submitted by manufacturers, importers, distributors, or retailers of liquor, or their agents.
(4) Liquor advertising materials, defined as institutional or educational advertising in WAC 314-52-015, intended for placement in retail outlets of the Washington state liquor control board shall be presented to the Washington state liquor control board for prior approval before placement. All other forms of advertising approved and accepted by the board shall not be prohibited under this rule.
