URGENT: Child-Resistant Packaging Rules Change

MEMBER ALERT: We were just made aware of a U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission letter dated TODAY (July 22, 2016) with revised industry guidance on The Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act of 2015 (CNPPA).

Today’s letter states, “Upon further legal analysis, CPSC staff has determined that the CNPPA applies to existing inventory on its effective date. Thus, beginning on July 26, 2016, the sale of liquid nicotine in non-compliant containers is prohibited. In a previous letter, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) staff stated that this requirement applies to products packaged after the effective date of July 26, 2016.”

SFATA is in touch with legal counsel and will provide an update.
