Retail Groups Urge FDA To Publish List Of Electronic Nicotine Delivery System Products
On Tuesday, PMAA joined four other groups in urging the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to publish a public list of currently marketed electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) products for which the Agency has received a premarket tobacco product application (PMTA) by the September 9, 2020 deadline.
By law, ENDS products that were first introduced into the marketplace or modified after February 15, 2007, also known as the predicate date, are required to submit PMTA’s for the FDA to review and approve by the September 9, 2020 deadline.
PMTA’s require a product to meet a regulatory hurdle that can be complex and costly.
By the FDA providing a public list of ENDS products that meet the proper requirements, retailers of these products will be informed as to which they can sell legally in their stores.
Joining PMAA were the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS), the National Association of Truckstop Operators (NATSO), the Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America (SIGMA) and the Food Industry Association (FMI).
