It is argued that we need to change the way we approach the regulation of financial institutions and look at what has been done in other sectors of the economy, where regulation and supervision are proactive and carefully implemented in order to guarantee the safety of society. The criterion for regulation and supervision should be neither Wall Street’s nor Main Street’s interests but rather the interests of the socioeconomic system. The latter requires financial stability if it’s to raise, durably, the standard of living of both Wall Street and Main Street. Systemic stability, not profits or homeownership, should be the paramount criterion for financial regulation, since systemic stability is required to maintain the profitability—and ultimately, the existence—of any capitalist economic entity. The role of the government is to continually counter the Ponzi tendencies of market mechanisms, even if they are (temporarily) improving standards of living, and to encourage economic agents to develop safe and reliable financial practices.

Separate and apart from the issue of preemption, elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA has made available draft guidance, which when final will describe FDA's current thinking regarding some appropriate means of addressing the premarket authorization requirements for newly deemed ENDS products, including recommendations for exposure warnings that would help support a showing that a product is appropriate for the protection of public health. Additionally, FDA notes that some ENDS product manufacturers have voluntarily included exposure warnings on their products. Accordingly, FDA has changed the heading of part 1143 from “Required Warning Statements” to “Minimum Required Warning Statements” in order to clarify that part 1143 is not intended to prevent tobacco product manufacturers from including truthful, non-misleading warnings on their products' packaging or advertisements voluntarily or as a result of FDA guidance.

(Response) FDA disagrees. This final deeming rule is a foundational rule that will provide many public health benefits, as described in the NPRM ( at 23148 and 23149), and will provide FDA with critical information about the health risks of ENDS and other newly deemed products, including data from ingredient listing submissions and reporting of HPHCs required under the FD&C Act. Also, once this rule becomes effective, newly deemed products may be subject to additional regulations. For example, FDA has the authority under section 906(e) of the FD&C Act to issue a rule establishing tobacco product manufacturing practices, and this authority applies to deemed products. FDA also has the authority under section 907 of the FD&C Act to establish product standards for deemed products, including requirements with respect to packaging. The Agency issued an ANPRM prior to this deeming rule, seeking comments, data, research, or other information that may inform regulatory actions FDA might take with respect to nicotine exposure warnings and the use of child-resistant packaging. In addition, elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, FDA has made available a draft guidance for public comment, which when final will describe FDA's current thinking regarding some appropriate means of addressing the premarket authorization requirements for newly deemed ENDS products, including recommendations for nicotine exposure warnings and child-resistant packaging that would help to support a showing that the marketing of a product is appropriate for the protection of the public health.

(Response) To the extent that comments are asserting that FDA should not regulate ENDS or subject them to certain provisions, FDA disagrees with these comments, especially given that ENDS use among youth and young adults is increasing. Although recent data on young adults and adults indicate that ENDS users are more likely to be former cigarette smokers and current cigarette smokers who have tried to quit (e.g., Ref. 24), there is still some use among adult non-tobacco users, particularly among young adults. In addition, the rapid increase in use among adolescents is concerning. FDA also remains concerned that ARPVs present the risk of accidental nicotine poisoning. In addition, researchers recently reported that the new generation of high voltage ENDS may put users at increased risk of negative health effects (Ref. 67) and that ARPVs have the potential for increased abuse liability (e.g., Refs. 109, 132, 171). FDA will continue to monitor research regarding the health effects of different types of ENDS and may tailor the regulatory requirements accordingly.

(Response) FDA disagrees. Although ENDS may potentially provide cessation benefits to individual smokers, no ENDS have been approved as effective cessation aids. If an ENDS manufacturer wishes to make a cessation claim, the company must submit an application for their ENDS to be marketed as a medical product.
