iJoy Issues Statement on FDA’s Deeming Regulations

As an innovative manufacturer of personal vaporizers, IJOY is proud to be the member of SEVIA.Together with Innokin, Kanger, Joyetech, Aspire and Smok, ect to join the fight to change the over tight regulations.

SEVIA and all the leading manufacturers members will financiallu support a variety of national organizarions such as CASAA and the AVA and the VTA

The vaporizer and electronic cigarette industry was shaken when the Food and Drug Administration’s Deeming Regulations for tobacco products were published on May 5th and went into effect on May 10th, 2016.

These FDA regulations are overreaching, costly, and place an enormous burden on an industry made up of tens of thousands of independent retailers. The regulations hamper innovation, ignore science & research data, and in their current form will prove hazardous to all of us who rely on this beloved alternative to combustible tobacco.

iJoy is a responsible manufacturer and is committed to restricting the sales of our products to minors. All packaging has clear labels and warning information and we have worked closely with vendors to increase awareness of responsible sales.  iJoy has developed and launched Secure child safety lock technology on our bestselling tanks for added security and peace of mind.

There is always more to do, however these regulations go too far.

The Shenzhen Electronic Vapor Industry Association – USA is the only American association representing a coalition of Chinese manufacturers. iJoy Technology have join the SEVIA USA with our fellow members in SEVIA USA – Innokin, Aspire, Kanger, Smok and Joyetech– today pledge our collective support for the vaping industry in defending it from these overly burdensome regulations.

We believe in freedom of choice, we believe in fair & reasonable regulations to protect consumers and the public health, and we believe in this lifesaving technology that provides millions with an alternative to lethal combustible tobacco products. The current regulatory framework introduced by the FDA will eliminate 99% of all eliquid, 99% of all hardware. All of the rapid innovations that we have experienced in recent years along with the potential for increased public good that these technologies can provide to society will be stopped. Furthermore if any technical problems should happen, such as finding out there is an issue after August 7th, manufacturers will be prohibited by the federal government to address this and fix it.

As members of SEVIA USA, we are announcing our full backing to the Right 2 Be Smoke Free Coalition in challenging these deeming regulations. The Coalition will be playing a key role in organizing and funding industry activities. We believe the FDA regulations should be justly contested in every arena with every available resource.

In this spirit, we are expressing our support for the HB2058 and Cole/Bishop Agricultural Appropriations Amendment and encourage everyone to support these vital and responsible bills. The Cole/Bishop Agricultural Appropriations Amendment for the 2017 Federal Budget is the foundation of saving vaping by moving the predicate date from February 2007 to the effective date of the deeming regulations.

Moving the grandfather date will keep all of the thousands of independent retailers alive and save the jobs and livelihoods of tens of thousands of employees and their families. It will keep these companies from having to file extremely costly applications and will keep our industry alive while we cultivate further legislative strategies to save the industry.


SEVIA USA and leading manufacturers will also financially support a variety of national organizations such as CASAA and the AVA and the VTA. These organizations are champions in this challenge for every single vaper and manufacturer.

We also invite all Chinese manufacturers to join us at the table by joining SEVIA USA. We need one another at this time more than ever. We are not just competitors; we are family and we must overcome this challenge together.

If these regulations stand, innovation and product improvements will come to a total halt. Safety issues will by mandate go unaddressed and new advanced technologies will not be allowed to be introduced to the American market. Smokers who have yet to quit may never find the setup that is right for them do so and more Americans will continue to suffer and die needlessly.

This is for every single one of us and for the millions more who have yet to switch. This is just the beginning.

IJOY Technology now invites you to support the industry efforts. We need you!
