Drugs packaging for e-liquids

January 28, 2016

With the passage of the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act by both houses of Congress, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) will likely soon get new authority to require child-resistant packaging over certain packages of nicotine-containing e-liquid, according to the law firm Keller and Heckman.

If the President signs the bill, covered products will be subject to the same requirements that CPSC already enforces on packaging of prescription drugs, some over-the-counter drugs, and other potentially hazardous products found in the home.

Bottles of refillable nicotine-containing e-liquid sold directly to consumers for use in “open-system” electronic vaping devices are covered, but packaging for zero-nicotine e-liquid—a growing segment of the e-liquid market—is not covered by the definition, according to Keller and Heckman.
