Next Phase of Tobacco Regulation Under White House Scrutiny

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has filed its updated deeming regulations for electronic cigarettes, cigars and other previously undeemed tobacco products. As first reported by The Cigar Authority and Cigar Aficionado, the White House Office of Management & Budget (OMB) officially acknowledged yesterday that the FDA has submitted its final deeming regulations for review.

This represents the eighth step in the nine-step rulemaking process, following the FDA’s nearly yearlong review of public comments (the public comment period ended in August, 2014) and updating of the proposed regulations that deem the tobacco products to be under the FDA’s jurisdiction.

Following the OMB review, the ninth and final step is for the FDA to issue its finalized deeming regulations to the public.

Though there is no deadline for the OMB to complete its review, the process typically takes 60 to 90 days. The FDA is “pushing for an expedited process,” Cigar Authority said.
