September is We Card Awareness Month
September is We Card Awareness Month and it's a great time to train or re-train employees and raise awareness of the new FDA regulations governing newly deemed tobacco products.
OGA encourages all retailers to continue in their efforts to successfully identify and prevent age-restricted product sales to minors. We Card resources include:
* We Card's 2017 materials will be available to order at www.wecard.org.
* We Card's online training and its mystery shopping service - ID Check-Up, help equip your store employees with the knowledge while you can gauge their performance with mystery shops.
* An updated We Card Federal Law & FDA Regulation Summary - covering FDA-regulated products, such as: cigars, hookah & pipe tobacco, e-cigarettes, vaping products, and their accessories, nicotine gels and dissolvable tobacco products. See the Resource Center at www.wecard.org.
* We Card NOW, a smartphone mobile site with digital resources, an Age Calculator tool, and a digital version of the We Card calendar along with training tips. Go to www.wecardnow.com.
