Scott Gottlieb, the commissioner of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), announced the agency will extend a Sept. 30, 2017 deadline for domestic tobacco product establishments to register and list its products.

The regulation only applies to domestic manufacturers of newly deemed tobacco products, which likely means many of those subject to the rules are e-cigarette and vaping businesses. However, domestic cigar factories, including cigar shops which roll their own cigars, are subject to the regulation.

The new deadline is Oct. 12, 2017.

In May, the agency delayed all future deadlines associated with the deeming regulations by 92 days. This pushed back the domestic manufacturers requirement, which was once due on Dec. 31, 2016 to Sept. 30, 2017.

Updated (Sept. 28, 2017) — The FDA announced the date of the new deadline. This story was originally published on Sept. 27, 2017. h/t Bill.
