The FDA e-cigarette deeming regulations have entered the final stage for approval now that they have been sent to the White House Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OMB/OIRA). The deeming regulations have the potential to devastate the Vapor Industry as we know it today, with some estimating over 95 percent of all products on the market today will be banned!
The FDA Deeming Regulation Would:
Require that all electronic cigarettes (Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems) manufactured after 2007 must submit a "Pre Market Tobacco Application" for the FDA to review. The cost of this would be prohibitive to the vast majority of companies, the process would also be long and time consuming, stifling innovation and technical advancement within the Industry.
Put 50,000 plus Vaping Industry Employees out of work.
Create a monopoly or oligopoly of just one or several legal (i.e. FDA approved) Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) manufacturers and products – with large tobacco companies the most likely winners…oh the irony!!!
The good news is we can fight this. Electronic Cigarette Companies continue to fight their corner and are arranging meetings with the Regulatory Office in Washington. They will demonstrate the impact these regulation will have on the Industry, putting the very people America proudly shouts about out of business. America, the land of opportunity, the place where the Entrepreneur should flourish, the American Dream, all under threat from ill conceived and poorly thought out regulation.
Now, how can you, the Vaper, make your voice heard?
Call the White House: (202) 456-1111 or (202) 456-1414
Demand that the FDA reconsider the damage that will be caused by implementing the current draft of their tobacco deeming regulations.
