2016 FDA Deeming Rule Compliance
Effective Monday, August 8th, 2016:
Monster Vape can no longer discuss the health benefits of vaping vs. cigarettes. In the past we have given our opinions to customers. This is no longer viable. All of our products are considered tobacco products.
Monster Vape can no longer build coils, change wicks or wrap batteries. This would make us a manufacturer of coils or batteries and would require that we file a PMTA with the FDA before we sold it.
We can no longer provide free flavor testing. It will require some sort of charge to the customer.
We can no longer introduce new e-liquid flavors to the marketplace, without filing a new PMTA with the FDA.
Monster Vape is staying open. Monster Vape will be compliant with the FDA’s regulations.
We can build coils and change wicks on a store-owned device so that a customer can see how it’s done.
We can put a tank on a mod, change pre-built coils in tanks, fill tanks with liquid, and show a customer how to change mod settings.
If you, as a consumer have objections to these new regulations, we encourage you to visit our Advocacy page.
As we learn more about the FDA deeming rule, we may be updating this document.
SB 97 Compliance
As you may know, there have been many changes regarding compliance within the vaping industry. Some compliance regulations vary from state to state. Monster Vape is based in Texas and we are required to comply with new Texas law SB 97 with a deadline of NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 1ST, 2015. It is important that you read our Shipping Policy and Terms and Conditions.
Specifically, there are two new policies related to online orders established in the law that require changes in how our customers order online. Please see below:
1. Shipping Policy
Texas Law SB 97 now requires signature upon delivery. For the ability to receive orders WITHOUT REQUIRING SIGNATURE upon delivery, click below to get the form required.
If an adult signature is required for delivery, FedEx will attempt delivery three times and leave door tags at the front door to let the recipient know a delivery was attempted. After the third attempt, the package will be returned to Monster Vape. If an adult signature is not required, it is at the delivery driver’s discretion whether or not the package will be left by the front door.
The billing, shipping and age verification name must match to successfully complete your order.
2. Age Verification
Monster Vape now requires the use of a 3rd party age verification during checkout. The sale of cigarettes or e-cigarettes to anyone under 18 years of age is prohibited. Cigarette or e-cigarette sales are restricted to those who can provide verifiable proof of age. The sale of cigarettes or e-cigarettes are taxable. The prospective purchaser of these products will be paying applicable taxes and must be able to verify their age through a 3rd party age verification system as required by Texas law SB 97.
