Nicopure Labs Files a Notice of Appeal in their Case Against the FDA Deeming Ruleadmin
TAMPA, FL, August 30, 2017 —Nicopure Labs, LLC, the leading manufacturer of premium American-made e-liquids, filed a Notice of Appeal in the court case “Nicopure Labs, LLC et al. V. FDA et al.” in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
The R2B Smoke-Free Coalition is joining Nicopure in this appeal. Together, they are appealing the court decision made by Judge Amy Berman Jackson on July 21 to push for an objective judgment and to stand up for the rights of vapers and the industry as a whole.
“We believe in helping millions of adult smokers battle tobacco addiction through vaping products,” said Jeff Stamler, CEO and co-founder of Nicopure Labs. “We believe the FDA is doing a massive disservice to public health and we will keep fighting for the vaping industry to ensure these products will continue to help a growing number of people quit tobacco and start a new, smoke-free life.”
The focus of this case is the FDA Deeming Rule, which subjects vaping products to more onerous restrictions than combustible cigarettes. Nicopure Labs files this appeal with confidence that the FDA’s Deeming Rule violated the Administrative Procedure Act and the First Amendment.
With the Deeming Rule in place, vaping companies must submit a PMTA without any guarantee of approval or timeline of when it may be approved for every product that wasn’t on the market prior to February 15, 2007, which will effectively destroy the industry. Since it took effect on August 8, 2016, companies haven’t been able to introduce new products, distribute samples, make truthful statements about ingredients not present in the products, or improve their products for consumers.
