Cigarette rolling machine operators currently in possession of a cigarette rolling machine are required to certify compliance with this Act to the Attorney General by July 1, 2012. In addition to annual certification to the Attorney General no later than April 30th of each year, cigarette rolling machine operators are required to use loose tobacco that is certified for sale on the Attorney General’s Directory of Compliant Tobacco Product Manufacturers and Brand Families, and have a current Tobacco Permit pursuant to the Prevention of Minors' Access to Tobacco Act. The Cigarette Rolling Machine Operator Act also imposes requirements regarding location of the cigarette rolling machine, restrictions on the sale or manufacture of cigarettes, payment of applicable tobacco taxes, and quarterly reporting requirements.

Only cigarette brand families of manufacturers listed on the Attorney General's directory may be stamped, sold, possessed, or imported in Idaho. The Complementary Act imposes reporting requirements upon tobacco product manufacturers and stamping agents. The Complementary Act also establishes penalties for noncompliance with its terms.
