Last week, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started the process of sending warnings to non-authorized manufacturers and retailers of the products, however despite intense pressure to ban the compound it has not done so.
Synthetic nicotine vaping products, had until recently been exempt from FDA regulations because they contain nicotine made in a lab, rather than extracted from a tobacco leaf.
However, following a legislation enacted on March 15th, the FDA has been granted the authority to regulate tobacco products containing nicotine from any source, which has led to an alleged ban on synthetic nicotine.
After the passing of the ban, the Vapor Trade Association (VTA) had immediately began working on a strategy to ensure a viable path for companies which are selling the products. Moreover, the VTA’s Board of Directors and members met with the FDA Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) to discuss the ban.
