To Our Beloved Vaping Community:
As many of you know, yesterday the FDA issued their proposed deeming regulations for our industry. (April 24, 2014). We at NicVape have completed our initial review of this important document. (241 pages) We are currently in the process of pulling together a number of industry and government experts to further dissect and disseminate the material in this important FDA document.
It’s going to take some time. So please don’t panic! It is typical when the FDA issues a proposed deeming regulation, the public is given a specific amount of time to respond to the ruling. In this case it is 75 days. Once the 75-day period is over, the FDA, by law, has to answer each of those questions and then respond to the comments submitted.
The final ruling from the FDA is truly dependent on the responses they receive from all of us. An initial FDA- proposed ruling often looks very different from the Final Ruling once all of the input and feedback has been received. That’s because the FDA really does take everyone’s comments into consideration before formulating the Final Ruling.
So we’re reaching out to all of our customers to be a part of this historical effort. We’re going to be responding as NicVape employees, as a company and as members of SFATA and AEMSA, to the FDA with comments. You, as individuals, can respond, too. In fact, it’s vital that you do! Because it works! And NicVape is going to help you do that.
In the coming days we will be posting a breakdown of the proposed rule as well as defining the sections that are the most critical to our industry. We’ll be providing insight, recommendations and guidance so that you can craft your own response. The way we’ll be doing that is through our Newsletter. So we encourage you to sign up for our “NicVape eNewsletter”. We’ll be giving you up-to-date information, and providing analysis of the critical sections. So sign up and then come back often for updates.
Regardless of how this Deeming Regulation might feel, we’re excited about this first step toward getting regulations in place that are fair to the whole industry. Sign up now to be a part of our NicVape family, and thank you for joining this historic effort to have a real say in how this industry progresses.
