Virginia Tobacco Directory
On October 1, 2003, the Office of the Attorney General began publishing the Virginia Tobacco Directory listing tobacco product manufacturers and tobacco products that are in compliance with Virginia law. This directory lists the names of those tobacco product manufacturers that have been certified by the Attorney General as being fully compliant, together with their brands and brand families. The directory will be updated as necessary to add and remove tobacco product manufacturers and/or brands and brand families.
RETAILERS/WHOLESALERS: You must review the directory frequently to ensure that the tobacco products you stamp, sell, and/or import are listed and should refer to Va. Code §3.2-4207 and Va. Code §3.2-4212 for information concerning the prohibition against the stamping, sale and/or import of tobacco products not listed in the Virginia Tobacco Directory.
