E-Vapor and Tobacco Law Symposium
How Vape Moves Forward in a Post-PMTA World?
Keller and Heckman LLP will be hosting its 5th Annual E-Vapor and Tobacco Law Symposium February 9-11, 2021. This comprehensive three-day seminar will be held virtually, and will address legal, scientific, and public health issues relevant to the vapor and tobacco industries as we move forward in a post-PMTA world. Attendees will benefit from in-depth discussions on critical issues facing the vapor industry, including the FDA premarket review process, new rules regarding the delivery of vapor products, and state and local flavor bans, among other things.
Out of respect for COVID-19 concerns, this year’s program will be taking place virtually on a platform that will closely replicate the interaction and dynamics that are experienced at the in-person event, including opportunities to “chat” with the speakers one-on-one, network with colleagues, and participate in discussion forums. The sessions are scheduled over three consecutive days to better facilitate engagement and connections between attendees and presenters.
This year’s program will feature new, timely topics specifically designed to help vapor and deemed tobacco product manufacturers stay in compliance with rapidly evolving laws and policies. Topics that will be discussed include:
- FDA’s new guidance and proposed rule-makings;
- Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking (PACT) Act “Vape Mail Ban” and compliance requirements;
- Premarket Tobacco Product Application (PMTA) and Substantial Equivalence (SE) Report strategies for small businesses;
- Completing environmental assessments;
- New state laws (local flavor bans, licensing requirements, and state enforcement actions);
- Product liability considerations;
- Regulation and sale of e-cigarettes in the EU, Asia, and beyond;
- Updates on CBD and cannabis regulation;
- …and many more topics outlined in the seminar agenda here.
This seminar is a must-attend for industry professionals and newcomers alike, to remain up to date on the latest regulatory and legal issues facing the vapor, nicotine, and tobacco industries.
