Each unique business location seeking to sell e-nicotine delivery and vapor products ("E-Cigarettes") is required to obtain an electronic nicotine delivery system certificate of dealer registration for such location.  One registration is required per business location.

Under CGS Sec. 21a-415, a “person” means an E-Cigarette dealer or manufacturer.  Thus, each “dealer” shall be required to register with the Department of Consumer Protection (“DCP”) and be subject to regulation by DCP for each location, not every employee selling E-Cigarettes at each location. 

Wholesaler/distributors of Electronic Nicotine Delivery System or Vapor Product are required to be registered as Dealer of Electronic Nicotine Delivery System or Vapor Product based on the definitions of "Sale", "Give" and "Deliver" in the statute.
