CASAA Urges Support of both HR2058 and Cole-Bishop


CASAA is urging its members to support both
HR 2058
and
Cole-Bishop amendment
They have updated the call to action to reflect this support.

For more info please visit the updated CALL to ACTION
>> HERE <<

05.18.16
"Currently, there are two pieces of legislation in Congress that would effectively change the predicate date for products deemed to be tobacco by the FDA. In January, CASAA updated our Call to Action for HR 2058 and issued a separate Call to Action regarding the Cole-Bishop amendment in April. We have also provided an up-to-date list of co-sponsors with an opportunity for people living in those districts to send thank you letters.

Both HR 2058 and the Cole-Bishop amendment are vehicles for language that would change the predicate date in the Tobacco Control Act (TCA) from February 15th, 2007 to the effective date of the deeming regulations (August 8th, 2016). This change would allow for all vapor products currently on the market to remain on the market without being subject to the burdensome and prohibitive pre-market FDA approval application process. If Congress does not act to change the predicate date established by the TCA, the wide variety of vapor products that adult smokers have come to rely on to live smoke-free will be swept off the market."

Questions about FDA deeming?... the FDA wants to give you answers.


"Today, Tuesday, May 10th, 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is officially publishing its final tobacco deeming regulations in the federal register. This means the clock begins counting down on the various compliance periods within which e-cigarette manufacturers and retailers must implement certain practices.


CASAA has been receiving a high volume of calls and emails from consumers and small businesses regarding how the FDA Deeming regulations will affect them. Fortunately, the FDA has set up a hotline to answer your questions."

Here's How You Can Help!

NOW
is the time to FIGHT for your right to VAPE
#fightthefda
Don't wait for someone else to do it for you. 

These new regulations:
- will ban nearly 98% of vaping products currently on the market
- will put 1000's of shop owners out of business (due to the enormous cost of the PMTA process)
- will result in 1000's of unemployed workers
- will ban sampling
- Zero nic eliquid will be considered a Tobacco Product
- Shops who manufacture their own e-liquid will be considered a
TOBACCO PRODUCT MANUFACTURER


We MUST stop this!!



The MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do is to
make a CALL, WRITE, or send an EMAIL to your
Representative and urge them to
cosponsor and support HR2058.
(And then do it again!)

*** UPDATE ***
We are now being asked by the coalition to include support for the Cole-Bishop Ammendment

FDA Releases Deeming Regulations

It's a sad day for the Vaping community. 
The FDA has released the deeming regulations. 
These new regulations will put 100's of business owners out of business. And will severely limit vapers as to what products they will be able to purchase and use.


Here are just a few of the key points:
  • They did not move the predicate "grandfather" date.
  • They are classifying all vaporizers and products containing nicotine as TOBACCO PRODUCTS and will be subject to all laws pertaining to tobacco products.
  • All products manufactured since 2006 (with the exception of "accessories") will be subjected to the enormously expensive testing and approval of the FDA.
  • Products containing ZERO nicotine will be EXEMPT from the tobacco regulation and will not be classified as a Tobacco Product.
  • Shops who manufacture their own e-liquid are now considered a TOBACCO PRODUCT MANUFACTURER and will be subject to all laws pertaining to tobacco manufacturing.
  • 3 year window on the testing of "harmful constituents".
  • Vapor products CANNOT be marketed as "smokefree" or "smokeless".
  • Samples are banned.
