Letter to Stakeholders: Regulation of E-Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products

Tuesday, April 26, 2011  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
FDA will not appeal the recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Sottera, Inc. v. Food & Drug Administration, stating that e-cigarettes and other products are not drugs/devices unless they are marketed for therapeutic purposes, but that products "made or derived from tobacco” can be regulated as "tobacco products” under the FD&C Act.  FDA is aware that certain products made or derived from tobacco, such as electronic cigarettes, are not currently subject to pre-market review requirements of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.  FDA is developing a strategy to regulate this emerging class of products as tobacco products under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.  Products that are marketed for therapeutic purposes will continue to be regulated as drugs and/or devices.
