Learn How a Proposed FDA Rule May Substantially Change the Way E-Cigarettes Are Currently Manufactured, Marketed and Distributed in the United States

The electronic cigarette industry is rapidly growing around the world, with global sales in 2015 expected to exceed $4 billion. The majority of these products, including the “e-liquids” used in them, is being produced in China, and is sold around the world. The global regulatory environment for these products is rapidly evolving, as legislators and regulators in the United States, European Union and Asia attempt to understand the health and safety concerns presented by these novel products, and develop appropriately tailored laws and regulations.

The FDA regulates the manufacture, labeling, distribution and marketing of tobacco products in the U.S. through the Tobacco Control Act. Though a “tobacco product” is defined broadly as “any product made or derived from tobacco that is intended for human consumption,” “other tobacco products,” such as electronic cigarettes and their components may become subject to regulation if FDA “deems” such products to be subject to the new law.

This webinar by attorney Azim Chowdhury will review the legal status of these products in the United States, European Union, and Asia and around the world, focusing on the recently published “Deeming Regulations” by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which propose to treat e-cigarettes and their components as tobacco products. Join the speaker as he discusses how FDA’s proposed rule will substantially change the way e-cigarettes are currently manufactured, marketed and distributed in the United States, as well as its potential impact on the global market.
