As you may be aware, December 31st, 2016 is the current deadline for domestic manufacturer registration and product-listing submission with the FDA for newly regulated products. The full FDA Guidance document describing the registration process can be found at the link provided.
There seems to be a fair amount of misinformation and misunderstanding circulating within the industry. We want to let you know that we are taking every step to make sure our product is available for you, and your customers, from now until the foreseeable future. It is our responsibility to make sure you receive the highest quality products that are compliant with both state and federal laws and regulations.
Domestic manufacturers have had the option of either registering online by December 31st or to use a paper form (form 3741) as an alternative tool. Due to the large numbers of product listings, we expect that the FDA will experience delays in issuing confirmation numbers for the products registered by the December 31st deadline. Source Code Vapor has already received ours and will provide links to these in this email along with putting a link on our website. Also, it is very important to note that a conformation number from the FDA does not mean that the product listing, or that any particular product is “approved” by the FDA. It simply means that the manufacturer has gone through the process of submitting said facility and products to the FDA for the next steps in the approval processes.
As a reseller, you need to know that a statement of compliance such as ours is customarily done when the government does not verify compliance, and should be requested (demanded if necessary) from all manufacturers whose brands you carry after December 31st 2016.
*REVISED* The FDA has changed it's deadline as of December 9th 2016 to June 30th 2017. You can find this information on page 9 at the link proved below.
I have attached our statement of compliance along with links to the paperwork we have received from the FDA to this email. Thank you once again for being part of the Source Code Family of retail partners.
