“restricted flow requirement” states that an opened bottle, when inverted and squeezed continuously for five seconds by a five-year-old child, must dispense no more than two milliliters of e-liquid
New compliance standard for container’s with nicotine may be imposed causing all
those glass bottles and many others to be non-compliant then recalled or destroyed.
The FDA Deeming Rule prohibits manufacturers from changing the packaging of a product (except labels) introduced before Aug. 8, 2016. Any alteration to the product — including new bottles — would make a deemed product non-compliant and subject to the requirement for an approved premarket tobacco application before it can be legally sold.
a PMTA could cost over $1 million, and there is no guarantee it will be accepted and approved by the FDA. That’s why not a single application has yet been submitted for any vaping product, nearly three years after the Deeming Rule was finalized.
E-liquid sellers could be caught in a terrible Catch-22: comply with one federal rule and be out of compliance with another. If both agencies enforce their rules, the entire independent industry could be flattened - vaping360
Here in the UK and in Germany it’s the same. However, if you have a business license or know someone who has one you can still order 72mg nic base. I just hope the stuff lasts 100 years in my freezer.
The bastards won’t stop trying until they found a way to stop us from vaping. America is just the beginning. Once they found a way I’m sure we’ll have the same mess in the EU.
Thank god I’m too old to start a riot. But I still can choose who to give my vote. And it won’t be going to any of the established parties. They have showed us too many times that they don’t care for anything but their personal wealth.
The fact that the first statement makes such a bold and sweeping (and absurd) claim (when we all know good and well that big tobacco/pharma both have projects in the works and plans in place), seemingly gives reason to question every other aspect of the article as a result. (Not that I doubt the Feds are trying to intentionally throw additional confusion onto the market/industry in another attempt to delay and/or cloud matters while they fight for who has the power, and where the money goes…)
Ordinarily, I have had little issue with Mr McDonald’s reporting… But this single point seems to be a COLOSSAL fuckup IMO.
Well the FDA clearance I believe was just issued yesterday the 30th and this article came out on the 29th, so that wouldn’t be a fuck up.
They are also not calling that device a vaporiZer even though it basically is.
I haven’t verified anything in the article yet though it was all a copy paste from the site.
Your right there seems to be some oversight here because it appears the PMTA deadline has been extended now to 2022. This doesn’t make the article wrong yet but it does make’s me question the article as well I will look into the it more and debunk it if needed.
But has there truly been any PMTA submission’s considering it’s so prohibitively expensive and the deadline is extended?
I don’t know, and you bring up ANOTHER interesting WTF point. Is it merely the “inverted” and “squeeze” that we need to worry about, OR (as you said) are we actually talking about using 5 year olds to TEST the inverted squeeze thing ??
