Vapor retailers and e-liquid manufacturers have started to receive letters from the U.S. Consumers Product Safety Commission about planned surveillance of nicotine-containing e-liquids following the passage of the Child Nicotine Poison Prevention Act of 2015.
SFATA supported this bill and lobbied on behalf of this sensible regulation since 2013 and we praised the bill being signed into law by President Obama in January 2016.
“SFATA has always supported the use of child-resistant packaging,” said Cap O’Rourke, board president of SFATA. “Our members and many manufacturers have been voluntarily using child resistant packaging for years and this standard for child-resistant packaging for e-liquids would help the industry safeguard consumer interests, while continuing to offer adult smokers an important alternative to combustible cigarettes.”
In May, we hosted a webinar for our members on testing protocols with Lori Mitchell Dixon, PhD from Great Lakes Marketing Research and can be watched in the member-only section of our website. Manufacturers can also reference this report from Rock Bottom Bottles, LLC about their testing procedures for glass dropper bottles.
The letter says that all questions about the law and testing protocols for CPSC can be sent to Stephen Lee at 301-504-7844 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
