CDA has become aware that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has begun to enforce more aggressively a decades old law known as the Trafficking in Contraband Cigarettes and Smokeless Tobacco Act. This can affect all distributors, but especially those which have a cash and carry business operated from their warehouses, branches, offices, or stores. For more information on how this could affect you and what you can do to prepare, visit CDA's website.
In response to requests by CDA distributor members, a basic editable template regarding compliance may be found here.
