WCC Agent Order Form
- Looking to order a product for a tasting event, place a regular order at full price or order on behalf of a wholesale customer? The newly designed WCC Agent Order form is for you and now available for download from our vendor website.
Agent Allocation Form
- If your product is held on cross-dock, please download the agent allocation form from our vendor website. If your product is available for general order, please ask your customer to place an order from their supplying BC Liquor Store or Wholesale Customer Centre.
A copy of the Product Identification Standards approved by the Canadian Association of Liquor Jurisdictions and information about our inbound pallet requirements are available for download.
The files include a detailed section on barcode and pallet specifications that will be helpful for agents and suppliers.
In order to guarantee product quality for our customers, the Liquor Distribution Branch will adhere to the following guidelines when receiving and delivering perishable beverage alcohol products marked with expiry/best before dates:
Stale Dated Inventory
- Beverage alcohol products shipped to the LDB distribution centres with less than three (3) months of shelf life remaining will not be accepted and will be returned to the agent/supplier warehouse.
Short Dated Inventory
- If product is received with less than six (6) months shelf life remaining, the LDB reserves the right to return the un‐sold short* and stale dated product left in the LDB distribution centre(s).
*short dated product is defined as less than two (2) months of shelf life remaining.
It is mandatory for all agents and suppliers to submit a product label photograph with all new packaged product registrations.
Our Vendor Relations Team will review the label to ensure it meets the LDB's social responsibility criteria.

The BC Liquor Store retail chain has recently upgraded their systems. As a result, hospitality customers (bars, restaurants, hotels etc.) that purchase directly from BC Liquor Stores are now required to be recorded in the Customer Specific Products (CSP) program.
Both the BC Liquor Store number and the hospitality customer number must now be on the CSP list for the order to be processed.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
The LDB is asking you to review your portfolio for any customer-specific products that you sell to hospitality customers through BC Liquor Stores.
If your portfolio includes products restricted to hospitality customers that purchase from BC Liquor Stores, please submit a completed Authorization for Hospitality Customers to Purchase CSP from BC Liquor Stores form found on the LDB Vendor website.
Please include the BC Liquor Store numbers on the list for the locations in which those customers shop. Alternatively, adding “All BC Liquor Stores” to the list will enable the customer to purchase from all BC Liquor Store locations. The form can be emailed to email@example.com.
Charities and non-profit organizations that have a Special Event Permit (SEP) may receive donations of liquor product(s) from agents and manufacturers. Please review the guidelines for agent donations below.
