The new requirements mandate that tobacco product manufacturers provide and certify information regarding their compliance activities to the New Hampshire attorney general. Only after full and accurate compliance, may a manufacturer's products be offered for sale in New Hampshire. Additionally, licensed wholesalers must provide information about tobacco sale transactions and will be held accountable for transactions with non-complying manufacturers.
For both manufacturers and licensed wholesalers, failure to comply with the required certification and other duties under RSA 541-D and RSA 541-C may result in serious penalties.
