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.
