PMTA Application Deadline Pushed to 2022

 

The agency plans to issue this guidance describing a new enforcement policy shortly. Under expected revised timelines, applications for newly-regulated combustible products, such as cigars, pipe tobacco and hookah tobacco, would be submitted by Aug. 8, 2021, and applications for non-combustible products such as ENDS or e-cigarettes would be submitted by Aug. 8, 2022. Additionally, the FDA expects that manufacturers would continue to market products while the agency reviews product applications.

 

From FDA.GOV website, 7/28/2017-

 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced a new comprehensive plan for tobacco and nicotine regulation that will serve as a multi-year roadmap to better protect kids and significantly reduce tobacco-related disease and death. The approach places nicotine, and the issue of addiction, at the center of the agency’s tobacco regulation efforts. The goal is to ensure that the FDA has the proper scientific and regulatory foundation to efficiently and effectively implement the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. To make certain that the FDA is striking an appropriate balance between regulation and encouraging development of innovative tobacco products that may be less dangerous than cigarettes, the agency is also providing targeted relief on some timelines described in the May 2016 final rule that extended the FDA’s authority to additional tobacco products. The agency will also seek input on critical public health issues such as the role of flavors in tobacco products.

Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States, causing more than 480,000 deaths every single year. In addition to the devastating human toll caused mainly by cigarette smoking, tobacco also causes substantial financial costs to society, with direct health care and lost productivity costs totaling nearly $300 billion a year. A key piece of the FDA’s approach is demonstrating a greater awareness that nicotine – while highly addictive – is delivered through products that represent a continuum of risk and is most harmful when delivered through smoke particles in combustible cigarettes.

“The overwhelming amount of death and disease attributable to tobacco is caused by addiction to cigarettes –  the only legal consumer product that, when used as intended, will kill half of all long-term users,” said FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D. “Unless we change course, 5.6 million young people alive today will die prematurely later in life from tobacco use. Envisioning a world where cigarettes would no longer create or sustain addiction, and where adults who still need or want nicotine could get it from alternative and less harmful sources, needs to be the cornerstone of our efforts – and we believe it’s vital that we pursue this common ground.”

The FDA plans to begin a public dialogue about lowering nicotine levels in combustible cigarettes to non-addictive levels through achievable product standards. The agency intends to issue an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) to seek input on the potential public health benefits and any possible adverse effects of lowering nicotine in cigarettes. Because almost 90 percent of adult smokers started smoking before the age of 18 and nearly 2,500 youth smoke their first cigarette every day in the U.S., lowering nicotine levels could decrease the likelihood that future generations become addicted to cigarettes and allow more currently addicted smokers to quit.

“Because nicotine lives at the core of both the problem and the solution to the question of addiction, addressing the addictive levels of nicotine in combustible cigarettes must be part of the FDA’s strategy for addressing the devastating, addiction crisis that is threatening American families,” said Commissioner Gottlieb. “Our approach to nicotine must be accompanied by a firm foundation of rules and standards for newly-regulated products. To be successful all of these steps must be done in concert and not in isolation.”

The FDA is committed to encouraging innovations that have the potential to make a notable public health difference and inform policies and efforts that will best protect kids and help smokers quit cigarettes. To make this effort successful, the agency intends to extend timelines to submit tobacco product review applications for newly regulated tobacco products that were on the market as of Aug. 8, 2016. This action will afford the agency time to explore clear and meaningful measures to make tobacco products less toxic, appealing and addictive. For example, the FDA intends to develop product standards to protect against known public health risks such as electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) battery issues and concerns about children’s exposure to liquid nicotine. It also will provide manufacturers additional time to develop higher quality, more complete applications informed by additional guidance from the agency.

The agency plans to issue this guidance describing a new enforcement policy shortly. Under expected revised timelines, applications for newly-regulated combustible products, such as cigars, pipe tobacco and hookah tobacco, would be submitted by Aug. 8, 2021, and applications for non-combustible products such as ENDS or e-cigarettes would be submitted by Aug. 8, 2022. Additionally, the FDA expects that manufacturers would continue to market products while the agency reviews product applications.

Importantly, the anticipated new enforcement policy will not affect any current requirements for cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, only the newly-regulated tobacco products such as cigars and e-cigarettes. This approach also will not apply to provisions of the final rule for which compliance deadlines already have passed, such as mandatory age and photo-ID checks to prevent illegal sales to minors. It also will not affect future deadlines for other provisions of the rule, including, but not limited to, required warning statements, ingredient listing, health document submissions, harmful and potentially harmful constituent reports, and the removal of modified risk claims, i.e., "light," "low," or "mild," or similar descriptors.

In order to further explore how best to protect public health in the evolving tobacco marketplace, the agency also will seek input from the public on a variety of significant topics, including approaches to regulating kid-appealing flavors in e-cigarettes and cigars. In particular, the FDA intends to issue ANPRMs to: 1) seek public comment on the role that flavors (including menthol) in tobacco products play in attracting youth and may play in helping some smokers switch to potentially less harmful forms of nicotine delivery; and 2) solicit additional comments and scientific data related to the patterns of use and resulting public health impacts from premium cigars, which were included in the FDA’s 2016 rule. Additionally, the agency plans to examine actions to increase access and use of FDA-approved medicinal nicotine products, and work with sponsors to consider what steps can be taken under the safety and efficacy standard for products intended to help smokers quit.

“This comprehensive plan and sweeping approach to tobacco and nicotine allows the FDA to apply the powerful tools given by Congress to achieve the most significant public health impact,” said Mitch Zeller, J.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products. “Public input on these complex issues will help ensure the agency has the proper science-based policies in place to meaningfully reduce the harms caused by tobacco use.”

To complement these larger policy considerations, the FDA plans to issue foundational rules to make the product review process more efficient, predictable, and transparent for manufacturers, while upholding the agency’s public health mission. Among other things, the FDA intends to issue regulations outlining what information the agency expects to be included in Premarket Tobacco Applications (PMTAs), Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP) applications and reports to demonstrate Substantial Equivalence (SE). The FDA also plans to finalize guidance on how it intends to review PMTAs for ENDS. The agency also will continue efforts to assist industry in complying with federal tobacco regulations through online information, meetings, webinars and guidance documents.

The FDA, an agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, promotes and protects the public health by, among other things, assuring the safety, effectiveness, and security of human and veterinary drugs, vaccines and other biological products for human use, and medical devices. The agency also is responsible for the safety and security of our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, dietary supplements, products that give off electronic radiation, and for regulating tobacco products.

VAPE PENS VS VAPE MODS - WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

VAPE PENS VS VAPE MODS - WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

Are you considering purchasing a vape pen or vape mod and are confused about which one may suit your taste? This can become a tough task as there are many factors you need to think about before finalizing your choice. Therefore, to assist you to make the right choice we will systematically analyse:

The description of vape pens and vape mods

The difference between vape pens and vape mods

 

WHAT IS A VAPE PEN?

In its basic form, a vaporizer pen is a type of electronic cigarette. The size of vape pens ranges from the estimated dimensions of a fountain pen to that of a cigar. The e-smoker breathes in heated vegetable glycerin or propylene glycol and then breathes out the vapour. Besides vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol, other ingredients used in the substances are water, nicotine (optional) and flavor.

WHAT IS A VAPE MOD?

Vape mods are also called mechanical vape mods. It is a bigger, more potent version of a vape pen. Vape mods produce more vapour than vape pens, while improving your throat hit and enhancing the juice flavour simultaneously. Vape mods are assembled with long-lasting batteries. They typically operate and use the same ingredients used in vape pens.

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN VAPE PENS AND VAPE MODS

Size

One of the most looked-for quality in vape pens is their convenience. They can easily be stored in your pocket, glove compartment, purse or any other compact area. The majority of e-cig usres acknowledge the fact that vape pens are a great source of stealth vaping.

Nonetheless, vape mods are diametrically different from vape pens when it comes to their size. Vape mods were invented to cater the limited functionality and battery capacity of vape pens. Therefore, vape mods are significantly bigger and heavier than vape pens, making them less portable.

Complexity

Vape pens are simple to operate and are typically recommended for beginners as they can be used correctly with little to no experience.

Alternatively, vape mods require beginners to invest in learning its mechanism as the design is more complex. Vape mods offer extra features to select from as compared to vape pens, which make it difficult for a first-time user to choose the right one.

E-LIQUIDS

It is a good idea for vape pen users who have just switched to vaping to go for the tobacco flavoured e-liquids to have the nicotine fix offered by filter cigarettes. Alternatively, intense e-liquids blended with other flavours such as peppermint or menthol work well with vape mods. Irrespective of the choice of your device, you can find any and every popular e-liquid vaping flavor at Vaping Industries for US Customers here: https://www.vapingindustries.com/collections/ejuice-by-flavor  and for UK Customers VapersWAREHOUSE here: https://www.vaperswarehouse.co.uk/pages/e-liquid-flavours. They are officially TRPR (TPD) compliant and offer fantastic deals for an economy e-cig user.

PRICE

Since vape pens are comparatively smaller and simpler than vape mods, it comes as no shock that they are strikingly cheaper. However, for those who prefer vape mods over vape pens the additional financial dent is worth every penny as this higher-priced option gives you an advanced and rich vaping experience.

DURABILITY

Vape mods are considered more durable than vape pens unless someone buys them from an unknown and unreliable manufacturer. The material used to make vape mods is heavier and superior in quality than that used in vape pens which are more often taken on tours or along for everyday activities. Thereby, they are manhandled and dropped more often, giving them a comparatively shorter lifespan than vape mods. Vape pens are remarkably durable given their size, price and quality.

BATTERY LIFE AND POWER

As already mentioned above, vape mods offer a lot more power than vape pens. They also have an extended battery life and more personalised options. Moreover, the voltage can be amplified or reduced to match your preferences.

WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

It fundamentally depends on what you value. If you are looking for something that you can take with you anywhere or are a first-time e-cig user, you perhaps would want to go with a vape pen. Alternatively, if you intend to vape primarily at home with more power and a satisfying throat hit then a vape mod is your best option.

Lastly, if fulfillment and not money is your plan then get the best of both worlds by purchasing one of each so you can have a vaping device for every ambience and mood.

FDA Deeming Regs Pushed Back 3 Months!

The following press release comes from Cigar Rights of America announcing an extension of upcoming compliance. WASHINGTON, D.C. – Since July 15, 2016, Cigar Association of America (CAA), Cigar Rights of America (CRA), and the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) have been pursuing litigation in federal court against the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), challenging the FDA’s May 10, 2016 Rule deeming cigars and pipe tobacco to be tobacco products subject to FDA regulation. In the context of the litigation, the FDA has announced an extension of upcoming compliance deadlines under the deeming rule.  Specifically, on May 1, 2017, the United States Department of Justice advised the United States District Court for the District of Columbia that the FDA will extend and defer enforcement of all future compliance deadlines under the Rule for three months, and that it plans to issue guidance to that effect. The United States Department of Justice informed the court that new leadership at the United States Department of Health and Human Services wish additional time to more fully consider the issues raised in the Rule.  For example, the deadline for submission of product listings, previously June 30, 2017, will now be September 30, 2017.  The three month extension applies to all future scheduled deadlines whether they fall in 2017, 2018, or later. IPCPR Chief Executive Officer Mark Pursell stated, “This is certainly good news for our retail and manufacturing community, given the nature of the rules the industry is facing, and the uncertainty they create. This gives everyone, the industry and the administration alike, time to revisit the regulation, to determine the best path forward.” Cigar Rights of America Executive Director Glynn Loope added, “This extension speaks to the questions raised in the suit, and the recognized need by the new administration to review the nature and impact of the proposed regulations. It also speaks to the virtue of our multi-front strategy to mitigate the threat of these regulations. It spans both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, and a courthouse in between.” The associations will collaborate on conveying additional information to the industry as it becomes available.  A notice is expected to be published in the coming days further memorializing FDA’s extension of compliance deadlines under the Rule.

GPriv Review

The GPriv, 2 battery touch screen SMOK kit is what you've been waiting for. I recently purchased the purple SMOK Gpriv 220W kit because purple is my favorite color.  And a girl should get what she wants.  It is purple and black (both the tank and the mod).  It is sleek and sexy.  I was super excited to pick this up.  It even comes with a sleeve if you are worried about dropping it, to protect the screen and the mod.  And actually I already dropped it once, and it still works just like it was brand new.  There are a lot of great things about this kit, but the main reasons why this is the kit for you is below. First: The hardware.  Tank - Smok Big Baby Beast & Mod - Gpriv 220W.  Batteries held in with magnetic side panel. It is clean, lightweight, and durable. Second: The functions.  Touchscreen with screen lock, time and date, number of puffs, wattage level and effect control, and battery level monitoring.  There is more, I just haven't gotten to play with it yet :) Third: The hit.  Smooth and controlled.  Not harsh.  It is clean and flavorful. Basically, it is everything you want when vaping your favorite flavors.  I currently have Reds Iced Apple E Juice by 7 Daze in my tank and it totally hits the spot.  I didn't want to even buy a new mod, because I was content with my Fuchai 200W, but it was time to be part of 2017 .  I am really happy with the SMOK GPriv 220W kit and I think you would be too.  Find it on our website or in the shop.  You won't be sorry.  It even comes in lots of different color options, so you might be able to find your favorite color just like I did.  I totally recommend this kit 10 out of 10.  

California April 1st 2017 Tobacco Tax

We Will Keep Updating the information with new posts once the state gives more clarification.

 

Message from Cosmic Fog Vapors

To our valued California customers, As you hopefully are already aware, starting April 1st all liquid nicotine (E-Liquid) products being sold into the state of California will fall under California tobacco product’s tax. There are many important things you must know as a business owner to make sure that you are ready and compliant with this new tax code as to not find yourself being liable for selling untaxed tobacco products. Cosmic Fog, through our position on the board of the California Smoke Free Organization has been negotiating with the Board of Equalization since the passage of prop 56 to make these new laws as least burdensome as possible for you. RETAILERS: Starting April 1st there are three main guidelines you must follow on all of the E-Liquid products you carry. You must obtain a tobacco products retailer license from the state of California. You may only buy nicotine containing E-liquid products from licensed California tobacco products distributors, wholesalers or manufacturers. You must receive and file a copy of every vendors license and keep on file while that product is on your shelf and maintain those records for a period of four years. Every product you purchase from a licensed channel must come with an invoice that includes the distributor/wholesaler/manufacturer’s license number with a separate line item showing the exact rate and total amount of the tax being charged on your order. You must pay this tax on every order and maintain these as records for a period of 4 years. What is most important to remember here is that all tax enforcement will be done at a retail level. Starting April 1st BOE enforcement agents will be entering your shop and asking you to show all of the documentation required for all of the products on your shelf. If you do not have this documentation, you as a retail license holder will be held liable. In an effort to prevent all confusion and offer the maximum amount of security to our valued customers, Cosmic Fog with be instituting a new policy starting April 1st. After April 1st, every bottle we sell into the state of California whether it be to a retail shop or to a wholesaler buying tax paid inventory to resell into CA, each and every bottle will be labeled with a CA TAX PAID Cosmic Fog sticker complete with our license number. This gives you an extra layer of protection when buying inventory from any sources that the merchandise is compliant. After April 1st you should never receive a bottle of Cosmic Fog, Liquid State or Next Day Vapor Products that does not have this tax label. Your existing unlabeled stock will still be okay to sell as long as you can show invoices and payment records that it was purchased before April 1st. At this time BOE has no plans to collect a retroactive floor tax. WHAT IS THE TAX RATE? This is the area that is going to most effect your day to day business operations. The amount of the tax is a percentage off of the price of the FIRST point of sale into California. California’s OTP tax is written in a way to directly benefit the companies that manufacture in the state of California. For these companies (such as us) they are allowed to carry BOTH a manufacturers as well as a distributors license. The board of equalization allows manufacturers to sell from their manufacturing side to their distribution side at the cost of manufacturing, making this the first point of sale in California. For example, if you order 1 bottle from us at a price of $10, Cosmic Fog sells that bottle from Cosmic Manufacturing to Cosmic Distriubtion at manufacturing cost plus any other costs the BOE requires be factored in. So if we assess the cost of manufacture at $1.00 per a unit, each bottle sold into California will carry a 27.3 cent tax. Making your total cost for the one bottle $10.27. At this time we are awaiting an acceptable cost of manufacturing to base these figures off of from our Tax attorneys and expect the tax on a 30 mL unit to fall between $0.30-$0.40 and the tax for a 60 mL unit to fall between $.55-0.65. EXAMPLE 2, NON CA MANUFACTURERS/OUT OF STATE DISTRIBUTORS Companies located outside of California CAN obtain a CA tobacco products distributor license to legally sell into the state of California. However, what is most important to remember is that the CA tax is based off the first point of sale into CA. If an outside distributor or company is selling untaxed product into the state of CA then the first point of sale will be the price charged to you. Meaning on that same sale of 1 bottle for $10 the tax will be based off of that $10 amount bringing the taxable amount to $2.73 and your total price to $12.73. Also please note that the tax rate of 27.3% is expected to change in July to an estimated 68% raising our the taxes to be collected on every unit sold into CA. Please contact us if you have any questions about bringing your business to compliance or if we can offer any support going forward. As always we will take every step to protect your business and be your go to source on all matter related to regulatory, tax and anything facing the future of our industry.

Air Factory ?Mystery? E-Juice Review

Air Factory ?Mystery? E-Juice What does this taste like? What is this juice suppose to be? I dont know what this is but I like it! All quotes from customers here in our store in Costa Mesa. All ideas that pop into your head after a Vape of Air Factory's ?Mystery? E-Juice ?Mystery? E-juice is a new flavor from Air Factory that tries a brand new approach to the flavor profile for juice.  No definitive flavor profile is available from the company leaving the experience unhindered by subliminal messaging on the packing.  A Unique experience indeed! ?Mystery? is packaged in a standard non descriptive, cartoonishly designed box that explains very little of the juice.  The juice is contained in an over sized 100ML chubby gorilla bottle.  The juice is available in 0,3, and 6 MG nic.

BUT HOW DOES IT VAPE

That answer is not so simple, which is definitely apart of the apeal of the juice.  The juice has been brewed to vape clean and smooth.  ?Mystery? is great on your coils and is absolutely capable of fulfilling an all day vape flavor.  The taste is however, an absolute mystery.  Different people have given vastly different answers to what they believe the flavor profile is.  Without a written que to assist in deciphering the flavor profile Air factory has achieved somthing special indeed.  The flavor is absolutely fruity but not specific.  The flavor is sweet like a candy but not overly artificial.  A hint of sour is present but again, not specific. My initial thoughts were a grape based flavor mixed with taffy.  But with a sample size of over 100 people asked,  I was alone in my opinion.  Apple, watermelon, strawberry, lemon, and even pineapple were all the flavor profiles given to me.  The Image of the White Mystery Laffy Taffy definitely flashes in your mind as you vape this juice but what exactly does a mystery flavor air head taste like? While being unable to give a specific flavor profile on ?Mystery? one thing is for sure.  The juice is a winner.  The flavor is unique yet familiar.  Smooth enough to keep your tastebuds active and reach that coveted all day vape status.  Being unable to identify the true flavor profile of the juice has deterred very few from enjoying this very unique Juice Air Factory have produced a true winner with ?Mystery?  We here at Vaping Industries just wish we knew what the flavor truly was!
