Understanding the PACT Act and Its Influence on Nicotine Vapes


Welcome to our PACT Act information center at Fume, where we aim to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how the PACT Act (Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act) affects the realm of nicotine vapes. This crucial federal legislation regulates the sale, shipping, and taxation of tobacco products, including nicotine vapes. We'll delve into the key aspects of the PACT Act and its ramifications for consumers, retailers, and the vaping industry.

What is the PACT Act?

The PACT Act is federal legislation designed to combat illegal sales and trafficking of tobacco products, primarily cigarettes and smokeless tobacco. With the evolution of nicotine consumption, the law now covers electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), encompassing vape pens, e-cigarettes, and other vaping devices. It imposes significant regulations and restrictions on the distribution and sales of nicotine vapes.

Key Provisions:

  • Shipping Limitations: The PACT Act enforces strict limitations on the shipment of nicotine vapes, requiring specific shipping requirements like age verification and record-keeping to prevent sales to minors.
  • Taxation: Applicable excise taxes are mandated on nicotine vapes, akin to traditional tobacco products, potentially influencing costs for consumers and retailers.
  • Registration and Reporting: Retailers and manufacturers of nicotine vapes are obliged to register with the federal government and report their sales, enhancing transparency and oversight within the industry.
  • Penalties for Non-Compliance: Severe penalties, including substantial fines and potential criminal charges, are outlined for illegal distribution under the PACT Act.


Understanding the PACT Act holds significance for consumers, retailers, and the vaping industry at large. It influences how nicotine vapes are sold, shipped, and taxed, leading to changes in product availability, shipping times, and pricing for consumers. Retailers and manufacturers need to adapt to comply with these new regulations or face significant penalties.
