A conference organized by the VTA is taking place in Washington, D.C., to inform manufacturers about compliance with the FDA’s final deeming regulations on vaping products.
Attorneys of several firms specialized in regulatory law, litigation, and business transactions were invited to give a speech to the audience made of e-cig manufacturers, importers and suppliers.
Several delegations of smoke-free associations like Utah or Tennessee came in support of businesses “to push for a move to the predicate date on Vapor products”.
Update on 06/09/2016:
In a press release, VTA advocates for the Cole & Bishop Amendment at the Capitol.
The Amendment should:
- Save small and mid-size vapor businesses;
- Save lives, as vaping is a safer alternative to smoking;
- Address the issue of product safety;
- Protect youth;
- Limiting print advertising of vapor products to adult publications,
- Requiring face-to-face sales, banning self-service except at age-restricted venues,
- Requiring age-restriction labelling.
- Give the federal government the ability to enforce the law, requiring retailers to register, if not already mandated by State laws.
