Earlier this year the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act of 2015 was signed into law. Many members have asked what it means for them and how they can be sure they comply with the new law. SFATA members are invited to a member-only webinar on this topic on Wednesday, May 11, at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT.
The bill requires any nicotine provided in a liquid nicotine container sold, offered for sale, manufactured for sale, distributed in commerce, or imported into the United States to be packaged in accordance with the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC’s) standards and testing procedures under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act of 1970. This webinar will review: the steps required to initiate testing, how the testing occurs, the testing process, and testing documentation.
SFATA is working with Lori Mitchell Dixon, Ph.D., from Great Lakes Marketing to bring this important information to SFATA members as implementation of the law approaches. Lori brings more than 30 years of packaging research and marketing consulting experience to your projects. She earned a doctorate in strategic marketing with minors in statistics and international business. Her academic training combined with front-line experience make her marketing insights and product innovation research invaluable.
Lori is an active member of several ASTM committees related to child-resistant packaging. She is also an active member of the Canadian Standards Association and the National Poison Prevention Week Council.
Great Lakes Media is an accredited lab and has been testing child resistant packaging since the enactment of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act in 1970. Located in Ohio, the company holds a GSA contract and has a staff of about 40 professionals.
