Here is a round-up of the key facts on the U.S. e-cigarette regulation proposals released in Washington yesterday.
The new regulations for e-cigarettes and other tobacco products from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) were published today in the Federal Register, beginning the process that will eventually lead to their approval and implementation.
The deeming regulations on e-cigarettes issued yesterday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) were largely expected by the industry and greeted without panic, although concerns were raised over the product approval process and the underlying philosophy of regulating all nicotine-containing products in a similar way.
The proposed regulations for e-cigarettes released yesterday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are only proposals, and the FDA still appears uncertain about how to regulate many aspects of the new products.
The commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) drew laughter from a Washington, D.C. audience this week when she promised that the agency’s long-delayed deeming rules on e-cigarettes and other products were imminent.
A little-noticed provision in the new regulations for e-cigarettes and other products proposed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) appears to give the agency authority to extend its remit to novel tobacco products as yet uninvented.
The new regulations for e-cigarettes proposed yesterday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are the second major regulatory framework for the products to appear in two months, following the European Union’s release of its revised Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) earlier this year. How do the two compare in key areas?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considered the overall probable impact of e-cigarettes on public health in formulating its new regulations released yesterday, according to the agency.
Key Democratic members of Congress on Thursday eagerly welcomed the long-delayed proposal by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to extend the agency’s regulatory authority over the e-cigarette industry and other tobacco products, while Republican law-makers remained more muted.
One of the biggest, if least surprising, measures in today’s proposed U.S. regulations for e-cigarettes is the restriction of sale to over-18s.
The short history of e-cigarettes could mean they need a special system for assessing new products, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggests in its proposed regulations released today.
The new e-cigarette regulations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will apply to cartridges as well as the e-cigs themselves, but some accessories may be exempt.
The health warnings required on e-cigarette packaging by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be markedly less obtrusive than those mandated on packs of tobacco cigarettes.
The new U.S. e-cigarette regulations proposed today by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) leave much space for states to impose their own local rules, particularly in the areas of advertising, minimum purchase ages, and public place usage.
The e-cigarette regulations proposed today by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will not prohibit flavourings – but the agency is leaving the door open for that to happen in the future.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to today release a draft of the long-awaited regulations which will enable it to control the production and sale of e-cigarettes.
The European Union (EU) does not plan to issue detailed guidance on how e-cigarette regulations in the recent Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) should be interpreted, according to a source close to the EU’s Directorate General for Health and Consumer Affairs (SANCO)
More details are emerging of likely changes to the Italian tax regime on e-cigarettes, following a court challenge to rules which came into effect in the new year.
The intentions of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on e-cigarette regulation remain opaque today, after an industry association abandoned plans to publish the agency’s proposed rule on new smoking products.
The European Parliament’s new rules on e-cigarettes in the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) have grabbed the attention of key members of the U.S. Senate, generating mixed reactions on whether it should influence the efforts of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to regulate the products.
