The New PACT Act Goes Into Effect Tomorrow for all Online Shippers

Posted on July 29, 2010. Filed under: Other | Tags: , , , |

Beginning tomorrow, the PACT (Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking) Act signed into law earlier this year prevents shippers from mailing cigarettes or smokeless tobacco products with few exceptions.     Some exceptions to this law include:

  • Shipment of cigars is not prohibited under this Act
  • Shipment entirely within Alaska or Hawaii
  • Shipments transmitted between verified and authorized tobacco industry businesses for business purposes, or between such businesses and federal or state agencies for regulatory purposes
  • Infrequent, lightweight shipments mailed by age-verified adult individuals
  • Shipments of cigarettes sent by verified and authorized manufacturers to verified adult smokers age 21 and over for consumer testing purposes, and shipments sent by federal agencies for public health purposes.

All shipments of cigarettes that qualify for one of these exceptions must include a unique mark for its particular exception on the address side of the package. Additional requirements may apply.

The USPS website has more information about this new law.
