Application for distributor license

(1) Any person engaging or seeking to engage in the sale of tobacco products as a distributor shall file an application for a distributor’s license with the Department of Revenue.

A distributor shall apply for and obtain a license for each place of business at which the distributor engages in the business of distributing tobacco products. A fee may not be charged for the license. For the purposes of this section, a vending machine in and of itself is not a place of business.

(2) A person may not engage in the business of distributing tobacco products in this state without a license.

(3) A person filing an application under this section shall include with the application a written statement certifying that the person will comply with the provisions of ORS 180.483 (Distributor obligations) and 180.486 (Prohibited conduct) where applicable.
