An analysis of US FDA import alerts on e-cigarettes

In May 2023, the US FDA issued import alerts on multiple vape products and said any that do not have marketing authorisation will be detained at the border. This report looks at the process, implications and disagreements related to these import bans.

IMiracle, the manufacturer of Elf Bar and EBDesign e-cigarettes, has called on the FDA to reverse the import ban on its products and for coherent, clear and depoliticised regulation of the US vaping market.
