From the U.S. to our lab in just under 44 hours — all because the right processes were put in place. The samples were quickly and carefully analysed and are now being run as part of their regulatory submission study.
The PACT Act
The PACT Act, introduced in late 2020, will prevent the online sale of electronic cigarettes and ENDS to children. The act bans the U.S. Mail shipments of vaping products and requires on-line vape retailers to follow a set of stringent rules concerning age verification, registration with various authorities, tax collection, and record-keeping. This is why some considerations need to be made when sending samples for testing.
We created a simple process to follow and have added all the relevant documentation needed to safely and securely transport ENDS related products to our laboratory. When shipping samples internationally, we assist customers in creating a commercial invoice, preventing any delays at customs. The commercial invoice contains information on tariff codes, an itemized list of the package contents, a description of the package, courier information, special notations, and the purpose of the testing.
