If you are a tobacco supplier, timing your orders for new tobacco products is very important, because these newly deemed products go through permanent review requirements and it may take a while until FDA completes the premarket tobacco product applications (PMTA) review process.
The category of new tobacco products includes e-cigarettes, some smokeless tobacco, some cigars, as well as hookah and pipe tobacco all of which can be found at your local Denver head shops.
Delays are caused by the fact that more emphasis is now being placed on the protection of public health (reducing the disease and mortality associated with using tobacco) and prioritizing companies that strive to reduce the toxicity and addictiveness of their products.
Sometimes it takes time until new tobacco products are analyzed to guarantee that they are not misleading, so you will have to think about placing orders so that your stock does not suffer. In general, after the initial compliance period, if no other problems or delays occur, new tobacco products are subject to a 1-year continued compliance period.
At the same time, you should also consider that certain products may not receive a marketing authorization after all.
You need to stay up to date on information related to premarket tobacco product applications and regulations that may change.
