Lighter Testing

Cigarette and Multi-Purpose Lighter Testing

Great Lakes Marketing has been actively testing lighters since the regulations were being developed. In the summer of 1994, the CPSC finalized rules for testing cigarette lighters. In December 2000, multi-purpose lighters were added. Great Lakes Marketing was working with the CPSC from the beginning to refine these rules and has been testing the effectiveness of lighters since then.
