Imported E-Cigarettes Subject to FDA Regulation

Jun 20, 2022 by Sarah Geiger
Congress recently clarified that e-cigarettes and other non-tobacco nicotine products must comply with FDA regulations applicable to tobacco products. Starting May 14, manufacturers were required to submit a premarket application to FDA to receive authorization to market their product.

FDA reminds the trade that import entries of these non-tobacco nicotine products must be transmitted to FDA for review. Customs brokers should use the same product codes as traditional tobacco products.
