Suspending your WSMP
You may voluntarily suspend operations under your WSMP for a period of 3 to 12 months.
If voluntarily suspending your WSMP, you must notify MPI by using form WA12, which asks for:
- the date the suspension starts
- the date the suspension ends
- what operations are suspended
- how you will deal with any affected wine or wine product.
You can send it to the address on the form or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org

If you cease to operate as a wine business, within 20 days, you (or if applicable the liquidator or receiver) must:
- notify MPI – either by using form WA12 or emailing email@example.com
- surrender your registration documentation issued by MPI to the address on form WA12
- notify your verifier.
You will also need to explain how you will deal with any remaining wine made under the WSMP.
