Electronic cigarette deeming regulations ‘onerous’

    The Tobacco Vapor Electronic Cigarette Association (TVECA), a coalition of private sector companies engaged in electronic cigarette technologies, is publishing on its website (http://www.tveca.com/) a preliminary version of the US Food and Drug Administration’s yet-to-be released final ‘deeming regulations’ on currently unregulated tobacco products such as electronic cigarettes, according to an association press note carried by the TMA.

    TVECA described the regulations as onerous and said they would greatly restrict the public’s access to the products of its members.

    The association plans to hold a series of conference calls with e-liquid manufacturers and e-vapor advocacy groups to ‘solidify’ the industry and its message.
