recent publications by the fda explain some new information in regards to these regulations and the fda's ability to handle requests regarding our industry...
"Today, the FDA issued the revised guidance, “Registration and Product Listing for Owners and Operators of Domestic Tobacco Product Establishments.” In the initial revised guidance issued in July of this year, U.S. manufacturers of newly regulated products faced a deadline of December 31, 2016 for compliance with the registration and product listing requirements of section 905 of the Tobacco Control Act. The guidance has been revised again to clarify that for U.S. manufacturers of newly regulated tobacco products who first manufactured those products prior to August 8, 2016, the FDA does not intend to enforce the submission deadline for establishment registration and product listing as long as submissions are received by the FDA on or before June 30, 2017. However, companies which begin manufacturing newly regulated tobacco products in a domestic establishment on or after the August 8 effective date of the deeming rule must register and list immediately with the FDA.
The FDA is currently accepting submissions and encourages companies to register and list their products in advance of the new compliance date."

The registration and product listing is part of the FDA’s deeming rule, which went into effect on August 8. The rule created a two-year period during which various parts of the rule are phased in. At the end of the two-year period, all products that haven’t received “marketing orders” from the agency are banned.
We continue to be committed to fighting these FDA regulations that are out of alignment and Big Tobacco's influnence, for our customers and our community.
Stay tuned for updates to this developing industry that we will post on our web site and other social media.
