SFATA_Capitol Hill_F

EcigAdvanced’s Klaus Kneale is in Washington, D.C. today attending SFATA’s ‘day on the hill’ Fly-In.Β This event aims at bringing together e-cigarette industry leaders with legislators and those involved in policymaking relevant to the regulation of electronic cigarettes.

Klaus has relayed some preliminary points of interest from the event, the following should be taken as nothing more than statements made at the event and by no means reflect a set-in-stone reality for e-cigarette businesses or regulation:

-It is very possible that the Office of Budget and Management will not approve the FDA deeming draft. The FDA does not seem capable of proving that the cost of regulation (lost business, jobs, implementing fees, etc.) will be worth the benefits.

-There are rumors that the Small Business Association is looking into the FDA’s proposed regulations and will fight it on behalf of small electronic cigarette companies.

-The FDA regulation pipeline is so convoluted that we are not likely to see regulation of the industry for 2-3 years.

-If FDA deems electronic cigarettes as tobacco products, all provisions in the Tobacco Control Act must apply to them. Most of these wouldn’t make sense and the FDA can’t choose to apply only some provisions. This makes deeming regulation for electronic cigarettes easier to argue against.

-Even if e-cigs are regulated as tobacco products, those using synthetic or non-tobacco nicotine are likely to be exempt. At minimum this presents a difficulty for the regulators.

-There are alternate agencies under which e-cigarette regulation could occur rather than under FDA. The most likely candidates are the Consumer Products Safety Commission or the Center for Devices and Radiological Health. FDA still seems most likely though.

-We should be concerned with the regulatory movement against e-cigarettes in Europe because the FDA and US regulators may use regulations as a precedent for our own regulatory plans. The same goes for US local and state level ordinances.

-Brazil banned electronic cigarettes outright and the black market for the devices is growing very rapidly.

-Some common e-cigarette ingredients are legally considered safe for consumption, but are still considered lung irritants. Many companies will likely need to overhaul e-liquid recipes because of this issue.

We’ll keep you posted as Klaus gathers more information from this event.

    Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours
    and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

    web will probably be much more useful than ever before.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of unique content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up
    all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any
    solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

    Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a
    massive amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog however I do write in my journal
    daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
