Microbac’s Wilson Division Receives Tobacco Products Import License

Less than one year after announcing the establishment of its Center of Excellence for Tobacco Products, the Microbac Laboratories, Inc., Wilson (NC) Division received its tobacco products import license from the Alcohol, Tobacco Taxation Board (TTB).

The laboratory has a long history in tobacco as a raw agricultural commodity, providing testing services on crop protection agents to the local, national and international tobacco-growing markets. The import license allows Microbac to import manufactured tobacco products such as cigars and cigarettes for analysis of tobacco and smoke constituents, as well as provide fire standards (ignition propensity) compliance services.

“The ability to import products for the purpose of testing to a regulatory standard is a key enabling feature of Microbac’s long-term growth strategy in tobacco testing,” says James Nokes, Microbac’s President. 

Reporting of tobacco and smoke constituents is well established in international markets such as Canada and Brazil and is the subject of the soon-to-be-revised Tobacco Products Directive in the European Union.
