Industry still objects to 2007 grandfather date.
SILVER SPRING, Md. — The 90-day countdown has ticked down and the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) deeming rule and its regulations for electronic cigarettes and cigars are now effective.
The agency released the final deeming rule on May 5 and published it in the Federal Register on May 10, starting the countdown. The rule also extends the FDA’s regulatory authority to hookah tobacco and pipe tobacco, as CSNews Online previously reported.
