Pandemic delays PMTA

5 May 2020

The deadline for the upcoming Pre-Market Tobacco Agreement, which was set to come into force on 12 May 2020, has been extended by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

To give the worldwide e-cigarette and vaping industry some time to breathe during the current crisis, the FDA requested US law makers extend the deadline by 120 days. Late last month, this was approved by a Maryland judge meaning that your PMTA applications must now be completed no later than 9 September 2020.

ADACT’s Chief Regulatory Officer, Damien Bové, commented, “The extension will come as a huge relief for the many companies struggling to operate as normal during this time. While the extension has been granted, the FDA have requested and recommended that people don’t wait until the deadline if they are already in a position to file their PMTA. This extended deadline will be of huge benefit companies that had not yet tackled their PMTA applications and is an excellent opportunity to get up-to-date with the legislation for continued sales in the crucial US market.”

Our prices for PMTA applications are more affordable than you may think – so we encourage you to join the many other companies trusting ADACT with their PMTA applications and get in touch to discuss our full service package.
