PACT - ACT

The PACT-ACT is "An Act to prevent tobacco smuggling, to ensure the collection of tobacco taxes, and for other purposes."
P.A.C.T. = Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act of 2009

For a longer period, it was not clear, if Pipe Tobacco falls under the limitations of the PACT-Act or not.
Finally, thanks to a pipesmoker Friend from USA, we received following answer from the US-FDA:

Sendermail: CTP EXECSEC [mailto:CTPEXECSEC@fda.hhs.gov]
Message: Thank you for your email. FDA does not enforce the PACT-ACT, and we do not currently regulate pipe tobacco, but this may change in the future. So please continue to check our website.
Signed by: Center for Tobacco Products/FDA - CTP Call Center: 1.877.CTP.1373 www.fda.gov/tobaccoproducts

This are good news: we are able and willing to provide our pipesmoker Friends with them preferred pipe tobaccos.
There are following things to remember, according to the PACT-ACT:

  • You can order and we can send: Pipe Tobacco, Pipes and Accessories
     
  • Shipments with Pipe Tobacco MUST have the exact content declaration including weight and value (we will provide the proper label on the parcel)
     
  • Perhaps in the State where you are living there are applicable different taxes, it will be up to you to make sure that everything will be according to the law from your side
     
  • We will NOT be allowed to send any Snuff or RYO
