  • clarkespositolaw Course on Vape Industry Legalities May 7, 2018 (with me!)

If you're in a haze about your legal requirements as a seller of vape products, I'll be teaching a course via for you entitled "Legal Compliance for the Vape & E-Cigarette Industry." Organized to help you make sense of the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) oversight of the "Tobacco Control Act" which regulates e-cigarettes, e-juice, and other products considered electronic nicotine delivery systems or "ENDS," it sets forth how you can start complying with the law today and prepare your Pre-Market Tobacco Application, which is commonly referred to as the “PMTA.”

The course description and learning objectives for this 60-minute program provide:

Course Description

The use of electronic nicotine delivery systems or “ENDS,” has seen tremendous growth in the last five years as vaping and the use of e-cigarettes has become more pervasive nationwide. With the advent of FDA’s 2016 “Deeming Rule,” which swept ENDS into the jurisdictional fold of the Family Smoking Prevention & Tobacco Act (aka “Tobacco Control Act”), which is an amendment to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, companies selling such products have been scrambling to comply with the ever-evolving regulatory guidelines, including that of obtaining a “Marketing Order” from the FDA in order to lawfully market and sell such merchandise in the US. Aside from federal requirements, both state and local ordinances are playing a big role in the limited or restricted sale and use of vape devices and its components, such as via flavor bans on e-liquids.

Learning Objectives

In this program, you will learn:

· What legal framework under the Tobacco Control Act currently exists, and key regulatory deficits that remain to be promulgated

· What types of merchandise are considered an “ENDS” product, and therefore subject to compliance with FDA’s tobacco products laws

· FDA’s existing legal requirements for manufacturers, retailers, importers and distributors

· FDA’s Market Authorization Process (including, the Pre-Market Tobacco Authorization (“PMTA”))

· Other federal, state, and local laws impacting the industry

The live course entitled, “Legal Compliance for the Vape & E-Cigarette Industry,” will be shown on May 7, 2018 at 2:30 PM EDT and thereafter will be available for viewing at To register for the live event go to:
