UPDATE – FDA's Ingredient Listing Deadline For Deemed Products Extended by Six Months
On December 28, 2016, FDA finalized its Guidance for Industry, "Listing of Ingredients in Tobacco Products" which is available here. In the new guidance FDA states that, "considering that some manufacturers of newly deemed products are not familiar with the forms for listing ingredients, and, therefore may need additional time to complete them accurately," the Agency does not intend to enforce the Section 904(a)(1) ingredient listing requirement for manufacturers and importers of newly deemed products that were introduced into commerce on or before August 8, 2016 for an additional six months until August 8, 2017 for non-small scale manufacturers, and until February 8, 2018 for small-scale manufacturers. FDA believes that this additional time will allow manufacturers to prepare higher quality submissions, and encourages manufacturers to begin the process as early as possible.
