Vape Manufacturers FDA Deadline

Per Continuum of Risk:

“Of note, on March 5, 2018, FDA Center for Tobacco Products published a new set of instructions which provides a step-by-step guide on using eSubmitter to list ingredients in tobacco products.  At the same time, eSubmitter was updated to include two new options for preparing ingredient listing reports, which are discussed in the new instructions..”

Each manufacturer will be required to submit the following:

Contact information for the manufacturer/submitter and U.S. agent;
A product list (much like the product list U.S. manufacturers needed to organize establishment registration);.
For every product, a list of “components”;.
For every component, a list of “ingredients” (e.g., single chemical substances and complex purchased ingredients); and.
Specific information regarding each ingredient (e.g., quantity, ingredient number, SKU number, supplier information for complex purchased ingredients, etc.).
For manufacturers of hardware, which does not, per se, include “ingredients”, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration offers the following:.

The Continuum Of Risk reports that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s deadline for vapor products manufacturers to comply with ingredients listing is fast approaching. Additionally, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has provided instructions for compliance, including instructions on how to submit manually to the CTP Document Control Center using the paper Form 3742. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration indicates that it prefers electronic submissions via the CTP Portal.

” Manufacturers of vapor devices and hardware components, many of whom have argued that the current “ingredient” listing requirement and process does not make sense for such products[3], will also need to report ingredients to FDA either manually in eSubmitter, using the original multiple spreadsheet method, the Option (c) spreadsheet for products other than e-liquids, or by developing and submitting their own files as attachments using Option (d)”.
