U.S. FDA proposes ruling over record-keeping for vape makers

Sept 20 (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Friday proposed a new rule that would require e-cigarette makers to maintain records related to the legal marketing status of their products.

A U.S. District Court judge in Maryland in July issued an order that would require makers of tobacco products, including e-cigarette makers, to file the applications by May 12, 2020.

When finalized, the rule would also help to ensure that e-cigarette applications by manufacturers contain information on the product’s potential public health benefits and harms, the FDA said. (Reporting by Manas Mishra in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
