Vaping seems to be an alternative to smoking tobacco, and many people believe that it does not cause severe health effects as it does while smoking tobacco. But studies and researchers are still going on to see the health effects of vaping in the long run. The FDA was quite strict about its rules with vaping as nothing is known about the harmful effects on health in the long run of vaping. But with the efforts of many vaping advocacy groups, the rules have been made a little relaxed.
Vaping regulations to the retailer:
• If a shop is said to prepare liquid nicotine or creates Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems, that shop will be considered as a tobacco manufacturer, and it must comply with all the regulations that are set for the tobacco manufacturers.
• All the advertisements that are about electronic nicotine delivery systems must have a health warming symbol.
• The packages that are sold by the retailers must contain a health warning symbol, and the warning message must say the product contains nicotine and it is an addictive drug.
• These electronic nicotine delivery systems must never be sold at vending machines unless the building is an adult-only establishment adult-only establishment.
• Retailers are strictly prohibited from giving away free samples, and they are also not allowed to give away parts of components of ENDS.
• The retailers need to check the id of every adult who is below the age of 27, and they cannot sell it to kids who are under the age of 18.
Vaping regulations to manufactures:
• The manufacturers are supposed to register their company, and they need to submit their product to the FDA.
• All the ingredients that are used to make the product must be submitted to the FDA and they also need to tell the FDA is any harmful substances are used to make the product.
• They need to market their product in a way that it complies with the rules and regulations that set by the FDA.
• Manufacturers are not allowed to introduce or produce any products that contain tobacco and sell it is less harmful.
• Local shops are considered as manufactures when they mix e-liquids, and they will have to undergo the same process.
Vaping regulations on Importation of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems:
The electronic nicotine delivery systems will have the same rules and regulations of importing and exporting tobacco. The products must comply to all the requirements that are made by the FDA, and if the product does not comply to any of the rules and regulation then they cannot be imported, and the admission will be refused.
There are many strict rules on Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems and thus manufactures feel that the prices of the products tend to increase and people will not be able to use it. The ENDS manufacturing companies will suffer a great loss if the strict rules seem to persist and tobacco manufacturers will continue to produce cigarettes with no competition.
