This afternoon the FDA announced via its twitter feed that it was extending the compliance deadline for submitting ingredient listings for deemed tobacco products by 6 months. The move comes a little over two weeks after they announced they would be delaying the listing for people in areas affected by hurricanes flooding and fires.
News of the delay came this morning from a major manufacturer who confirmed the news with IPCPR. Then at 2pm eastern time, the FDA announced it publicly via its twitter feeds.
This article will be updated with IPCPR and/or FDA press releases as they become available.
IPCPR Press Release Issued 3pm:
Earlier today, FDA announced a six-month extension to ingredient listing requirements for domestic manufacturers and importers of deemed tobacco products due to “technical issues users encountered” with their online system. This extension applies to both large scale and small scale manufacturers. The new deadlines are as follows:
- May 8th, 2018 – Large Scale Manufacturers
- November 8th, 2018 – Small Scale Manufacturers
As a reminder, this extension applies only to products on the market before August 8th, 2016.
