Model legislation

Published on September 20, 2011

The fire-safe cigarette model legislation was developed to mirror regulations developed by the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control after a three-year process that involved considerable input and comment from the public and affected parties, most notably the cigarette manufacturers. The regulations, building on years of research by a Congressional study group and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), have been in effect in New York State since June 28, 2004.

If you have questions about the model legislation, please contact NFPA's Lorraine Carli.
