A manufacturer shall use only one marking and shall apply the marking uniformly for all packages, including, without limitation, packs, cartons, cases and brands marketed by that manufacturer.


A manufacturer that certifies a cigarette in accordance with NRS 477.194 shall provide a copy of the certification to each wholesale dealer and agent to whom the manufacturer sells cigarettes. A wholesale dealer, retail dealer or agent shall allow the State Fire Marshal, the Executive Director of the Department of Taxation and the Attorney General, and their respective employees, to inspect the markings of cigarette packaging marked in accordance with this section.
