FDA holds workshop to gather more information about electronic cigarettes

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held the first of a planned series of workshops on December 10 and 11, 2014 to gather scientific information and stimulate discussion among scientists about electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and public health. The first workshop focused on device design and characteristics, e-liquid and aerosol constituents, product packaging, constituent labeling, and environmental impact. Specifically, methods to generate and measure aerosols, chemical constituents in e-liquids and aerosols, child resistant packaging, and in vitro models to evaluate cytotoxicity were discussed in addition to several other topics. It was noted that future workshops will address the individual and population health effects of e-cigarettes, including user exposure, user behavior, abuse liability, dependence, and short and long-term health effects. According to the FDA, the information presented and discussed during the workshop series is not intended to inform the Agency's rulemaking related to deeming additional tobacco products to be subject to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). FDA noted that if the deeming rule is finalized as proposed, e-cigarettes that are tobacco products will be subject to FDA regulation under the FD&C Act.
