FDA Again Extends Deadlines for E Cigarette / E Liquid PMTA Compliance to 2022!

The FDA has extended the deadline for submission of Pre Market Tobacco Applications (PMTA) for non-combustible tobacco products (e cigarettes, e liquids, vaping products) to August 8, 2022.  In its July 28, 2017 announcement, the FDA announced a new comprehensive plan which places nicotine, and the issue of addiction, at the center of the agency’s tobacco regulation efforts. Originally, PMTA’s for e cigarettes and e liquids were due August 8, 2018.
