FDA and State Compliant Age Verification

Companies in the Vapor industry have been confronted by a significant expansion of compliance requirements.  On August 8, 2016, the federal age restrictions for vapor products deemed to be tobacco products by the FDA required all retailers, including online retailers, to ensure covered products are not sold to anyone under the age of 18.

In addition to federal regulations, multiple state regulations require vapor retailers to verify the age of consumer prior to sale.  For online retailers these regulations require matching consumer provided information (name, address, and date of birth) against data sources commonly used for age and identity verification.

Electronic Verification Systems (EVS) offers age verification solutions that can ensure vapor product retailers are not transacting with individuals below legal age.  With the ongoing expansion of regulations, one thing the vapor industry can be certain of is that maintaining compliance will not get any easier.  By implementing real age verification that verifies the identity of the individual, and by having an audit trail to prove due diligence efforts in avoiding sales to minors, businesses can take a big step toward compliance with current and impending regulation.
