(a)  The regulations of this Section apply to the handling of alcoholic beverages in connection with one or a series of controlled‑drinking programs when any aspect of the handling would not be lawful except for the provisions of G.S. 20‑139.1(g) and these regulations.  If all aspects of the handling of alcoholic beverages in connection with one or a series of controlled‑drinking programs may be effected in accordance with North Carolina's laws and regulations of general application pertaining to the regulation of alcoholic beverages, compliance with these regulations is not necessary.  In all events, governing provisions of federal law must be met in the handling of alcoholic beverages.
