Because of the deeming rule published by the U.S Food and Drug Admiration earlier this year, more tobacco products now fall under the same scrutiny as cigarettes. Today, cigars, pipe tobacco, other tobacco products including vape items and e-cigarettes face stricter regulations, however, the popular and fledging vapor industry faces a threat of being snuffed out.
That was one of the significant observations Don Burke, senior vice president with Management Science Associates Inc., a diversified information management company made by at NACS 2016 in Atlanta Oct. 20. In a session called “The Impact of FDA Deeming Regulations on the C-Store Tobacco and Vapor Business,” attendees learned the potential future for electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), also called e-cigarettes, personal vaporizers and vape pens.
