Nicopure Labs Challenges the FDA’s Deeming Rule
May 10, 2016 — TAMPA, FL — Nicopure Labs, LLC, the leading manufacturer of American-made e-liquids was the first to file suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, challenging the FDA’s deeming rule that would subject electronic cigarettes and other vaping products to more onerous restrictions than combustible cigarettes under the Tobacco Control Act.
In its court filing, Nicopure Labs, who is not affiliated with any tobacco company, contends the FDA’s rulemaking process violated the Administrative Procedure Act, and that the deeming rule violates the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
“Back in 2009 Halo revolutionized the way e-liquid was manufactured and packaged, forever changing the Vape industry as few knew it. Today Nicopure Labs is again at the forefront of the industry as revolutionaries, as Nicopure Labs leads the way in defense of our constitutional rights and for the future of the entire vaping industry and the American right to choose. Through one voice, Nicopure Labs has taken a stand to ensure the voices of all vapers are heard, and that vapers are treated fairly and not with a single stroke of a broad brush by the FDA,” said Jeff Stamler, CEO and co-founder of Nicopure Labs. “We fully support reasonable regulation that protects consumers, accomplishes the public health priority to reduce the grave harm caused by conventional cigarette smoking, and allows businesses to survive and innovate for a greater public health vision for our society as a whole.”
Jason Del Giudice, CTO and co-founder, declared: “We are committed to responsible manufacturing based on superior product standards and stringent quality requirements. The FDA’s rule does not protect the consumer from low quality products; instead, it places a disproportionate and an unjustified regulatory burden on compliant companies such as ourselves, who are determined to drive the industry to the highest standards of quality and innovation.”
“Today we turn to the justice system to protect our rights and the rights of our customers because we believe in its fairness”, added Nicopure Labs General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer, Patricia Kovacevic. “The government’s role is not to regulate for the sake of regulation; regulation must be based on sound science and robust procedure, and it must accomplish certain public health goals.”
