Regulation Happens… To Synthetic Nicotine

Newer Five Pawns synthetic nicotine flavors

I have never tried synthetic nic. I never wanted to, but for those who do, there is trouble ahead. Even Five Pawns switched to synthetic nic. Here is breakdown from the National Law Review by Azim Chowdhury.

“FDA Receives Authorization to Regulate Synthetic Nicotine
Wednesday, March 16, 2022
On March 15, President Joe Biden signed a $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill to fund the federal government through September. The bill, as passed, includes a provision amending the definition of “tobacco product” in Section 201(rr) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (“FDCA”) as “any product made or derived from tobacco, or containing nicotine from any source, that is intended for human consumption.” 21 U.S.C. 321(rr). Now that it is law, this provision closes the synthetic nicotine “loophole” and puts synthetic nicotine products under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) tobacco regulatory authority.

The law will become effective 30 days after the bill’s enactment, i.e., on April 14, 2022 (“Effective Date”). Any synthetic nicotine product currently on the U.S. market as of April 14, 2022, can remain on the market for an additional 30 days until May 14, 2022 (the “Synthetic Nicotine PMTA Submission Deadline”). Manufacturers of synthetic nicotine products wishing to take advantage of FDA’s compliance policy and enforcement discretion after that date must submit a premarket tobacco product application (PMTA) to FDA by the enforcement date. If a PMTA is submitted in a timely manner, the product(s) may remain on the market for an additional 90 days after the effective date, i.e., until July 13, 2022. After July 13, 2022, any synthetic nicotine product not authorized by FDA must come off the market.

EVENT DATE NOTES
Bill Enactment March 15, 2022
Effective Date April 14, 2022
Deadline for any new* synthetic nicotine products to enter the market

Deadline for modified synthetic nicotine products to remain on the market

Synthetic Nicotine PMTA Submission Deadline May 14, 2022 (Saturday)
Deadline for submitting PMTAs for all synthetic nicotine products on the U.S. market as of the Effective Date
Final date July 13, 2022 (Wednesday) Deadline for unauthorized synthetic nicotine products to remain on the U.S. market
Notably, under the provision, a synthetic version of an existing nicotine product that went through the PMTA process and is now subject to a Refuse-to-Accept (RTA), Refuse-to-File (RTF), Marketing Denial Order (MDO), or withdrawal of a marketing order may not be marketed beyond the effective date, i.e., April 14, 2022. In other words, products originally formulated with tobacco-derived nicotine that were refused or denied authorization by FDA, then modified to use synthetic nicotine instead (and that is the only modification), will effectively be banned on April 13, 2022. Manufacturers of these products will not be given an opportunity to submit a new PMTA. This appears to be Congress’s way of doubling down on products that, in Congress’ view, switched to synthetic nicotine to get around the PMTA process.

Beyond the PMTA submission requirement, manufacturers of synthetic nicotine products will be subject to all requirements of regulations for tobacco products. This likely includes all other Tobacco Control Act requirements, including tobacco product establishment registration and product listing; ingredient listing; label compliance; and health document submissions, among others. We anticipate that FDA will provide guidance on deadlines for these requirements in the near future.”

sorry.were.closed.png

In the USA, it’s official, the FDA is now going to be pulling your card (eLiquid) if you did not submit your PMTA’s.

Yep, it’s starting. Start sweating. Four down, thousands to go.

Only the strong and smart will survive and or eLiquid companies with the most money, as the average PMTA filing cost’s about $300K per flavor, per nic level and per size.

Time to bring on some spring/summer flavors.

These exquisite flavors are perfectly blended and not too sweet.

Mika is a blend of passion fruit, orange, and guava.

“Taruto is the perfect representation of one of the most popular desserts in all of Europe and Asia, known throughout the world as a Portuguese Egg Tart or Dan Ta in Asia.”

Shaka is a mango and mangosteen flavor.

New Packaging – Same Old Goodness…

Quite a surprise in today’s vape mail. New packaging and new gorilla bottles! These are about the only flavors I will buy in 120’s these days as they are my ADV’s. Nothing comes close to these flavors of hazelnut caramel cream and tobacco. If you are as old of a vaper as I am, you will appreciate the hazelnut smooth tobacconess of this 555 without the wet socks weird Dekang/Ruyan flavoring of the past. Northland Vapor Company, hailing from Moorhead Minnesota, boasts no artificial sweeteners and no Diketones added. This makes for a really clean vape with very little or no gunked up coils. You can vape them individually or even blend them together to give yourself a unique flavor combination. I usually wait for the $9.99 each deal given out quite a lot or pay the retail price of $14.99 each. Not bad for 120’s 🙂
Give them a shot, you won’t be disappointed here.
