[DIV28SUPER] Comments due to FDA August 8th on proposed deeming rule to extend regulatory authority over tobacco

Dear Colleagues,


The Center for Tobacco Free Kids has created this microsite to make it easier for individuals to submit comments regarding FDA’s extension of jurisdiction to various tobacco products.  The comment period closes August 8th.



On April 25, 2014, FDA published a proposed regulation extending its jurisdiction to various “deemed” tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes. If made final, the proposal would subject deemed products to a number of significant regulations that would apply automatically by virtue of a product being “deemed.”2 It also would subject the deemed products to several additional regulations which FDA has discretion to impose, including (1) requirement for a minimum age for sale, (2) health warnings for product packages and advertisements, and (3) prohibition of vending machine sales.  


Please also find attached a “key issues” document constructed by Tobacco Free Kids that is relevant to the deeming proposal.
