What is GCC ?

GCC - General Certificate of Conformity is distributed to certify that the finished product (i.e., the filled and sealed e-liquid bottle sold to consumers) are CNPPA compliant.

 

What is CNPPA ?

CNPPA - the Children's Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act, which requires US domestic manufacturers of nicotine-containing e-liquids to comply with the child-resistant packaging and testing requirements set forth in the Poison Packaging Prevention Act of 1970 (PPPA), Pub. L. 91-601, 84 Stat. 1,670 (Dec. 30, 1970).

 

Effective Date - July 26, 2016

 

Apply to 

Bottles of nicotine-containing e-liquid sold directly to consumers for use in refillable "open-system" vaping devices.

 

Requirements

- US domestic manufacturer/importer of the finished e-liquid product shall provide test data and/or certificates to certify that the finished product (i.e., the filled and sealed e-liquid bottle sold to consumers) are CNPPA compliant.

- Under the CPSA, if the manufacturer is located outside the U.S., the importer stands in the shoes of the manufacturer, CPSA § 3(a)(11).

 

How to comply with CNPPA ?

Manufacturer/Importer of the finished e-liquid product shall create a GCC which must be "furnished" to each e-liquid distributor and retailer by sending a paper copy of the GCC with each product shipment or providing distributors and retailers a unique electronic certificate identifier which allows them (as well as the CPSC) to access the GCC over the internet.
