US: nicotine pouches – PMTA status Q&A, July 2022

While synthetic nicotine products have been in a legal limbo for a while – including uncertainty as to whether PMTAs were actually necessary for them – now they have been put under the FDA’s regulatory authority. This is quite a different scenario from the one for tobacco-derived nicotine pouches, which have always been under the FDA’s regulatory authority, as they are derived from tobacco, and thus considered a “new tobacco product”.

This report asks and answers questions regarding US federal regulation on nicotine pouches, reviewing current law, looking at what stands to change, and clearing up what could happen if state and federal legislation clash.
