Bidi Vapor, manufacturer of the disposable vape pen called BIDI® Stick, has submitted its premarket tobacco application (PMTA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for review. The deadline for PMTA submissions is Sept. 9, 2020. The Company acts as the sole exclusive worldwide distributor of the BIDI® Stick in partnership with Bidi Vapor, LLC.
The application detailed 11 flavor varieties with nicotine concentrations of 6% weight/volume as part of the Company’s proprietary e-liquid formulation. Starting from a science-based foundation, Bidi Vapor has engineered its electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) products using its own patented technology, ensuring quality control and quality assurance throughout the production cycle – from the purchased raw chemicals and components through to the manufacturing process – in a cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) facility. The product then goes through various in vitro and in vivo toxicity testing (including genotoxicity tests) at a GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) approved lab and undergoes HPHC (Harmful and Potentially Harmful Constituents) tests for aerosol and e-liquid at ISO 17025 certified labs. Also included in its PMTA submission, Bidi Vapor conducted three independent surveys and one “combined” consumer survey of people aged 21 and over.
Possibly the largest submission compiled across all ENDS manufacturers, Bidi Vapor’s application runs over 285,000 pages, providing science-based evidence to be authorized as Appropriate for the Protection of Public Health (APPH) and further supporting the public need to provide options to adult smokers of combustible tobacco products. The PMTA process will allow the FDA to review ENDS from individual manufacturers to potentially authorize continued marketing in the United States, officials with Bidi Vapor stated.
Bidi Vapor supports comprehensive regulation of online sales of nicotine products to adults, preventing youth access, and marketing only to adults. The company is in favor of regulating imports and limiting public access to non-U.S. e-commerce websites that whether knowingly or unknowingly contribute to counterfeit and black market distribution of nicotine vaping products. Additionally, Bidi Vapor supports nicotine product tracing to be applied to vaping products to ensure the U.S. government’s collection of import duties and state taxes; and enforcement of proper labeling requirements.
Regarding the concern about minors possibly having access to vaping products, BIDI® Vapor uses several stages of legal-age and identity verification with its products:
