The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) posted on May 20 a list of electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) products for which it has received a premarket tobacco product application (PMTA) by the Sept. 9, 2020, deadline. The list includes more than 6 million products. NATSO has urged FDA to publish such a list so that retailers – including travel centers – will know which products are legal for them to sell. Although FDA committed to publishing a list, it was not made available until now.
On Aug. 8, 2016, all ENDS products became subject to the FDA’s tobacco authorities, including the premarket authorization requirements. This means all e-cigarettes and other ENDS products on the market at that time needed to have authorization from the FDA to be legally marketed. To remain on the market, manufacturers of ENDS products were required to submit a PMTA to FDA by Sept. 9, 2020. Once a PMTA has been submitted, a product can be sold for up to 12 months while the application is being considered.
