Submit Comments on the FDA Proposed Rules to Regulate

E-Cigarettes, Cigars and Hookahs


On April 25, 2014, the FDA proposed rules that will strictly regulate electronic cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, nicotine gels, water pipe tobacco and hookahs. After a 75-day public comment period, the proposed rules will include items such as: 

Setting the age limit to buy the products to be at least 18 (states can set it higher);
Health warnings required on all products;
Sale of the products in vending machines would be prohibited;
Manufacturers would be required to register all of their products and ingredients with the FDA; Manufacturers would only be able to market new products after an FDA review;
Manufacturers would need to provide scientific evidence before making any claims of risk reduction tied to use of their product

 

The FDA is accepting public comments on the proposed regulation until July 9, 2014. Please take a few minutes to submit comments that reflect your knowledge and perspective on the issue. If you would like more information, the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium's FDA Tobacco Project team has been developing resources related to the proposed regulation. The materials, which include a fact sheet summarizing the key elements of the proposed regulation and suggested talking points for comments on the regulation docket, can be found on the deeming regulation resource page of our FDA Action Center.

New Information From the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention:

“Survey Finds Youth Benefit From Violence Prevention Programs.  Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal has published “Youth Exposure to Violence Prevention Programs in a National Sample.” This paper is based on research from the National Survey of Children's Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV), a study that OJJDP sponsors on the prevalence of children’s exposure to violence. The survey findings show that two-thirds of children ages 5–9 and three-quarters of youth 10–17 years old have benefitted from formal bullying or violence prevention programs. The researchers found that school-age children had lower levels of both peer victimization and perpetration, while older youth made more disclosures about victimization to parents and authorities.”
