In the most recent AEMSA (American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association) news, on March 21, 2013 – AEMSA went before the FDA and introduced them to AEMSA’s Structure, Membership, Mission, Standards, Science behind the Standards (SME presentations), how the Standards are applied by their General Members in their facilities and our Inspections (both scheduled and unscheduled). Clearly, by the very nature of AEMSA, these were all directly in relation to Re-Fillable E-liquids and the manufacturing processes.

The FDA will not only be enlightened about electronic cigarette products as a whole, but they’ll see a side to electronic cigarettes that have helped make them become so popular.
Trust me, this is one you’ll definitely want to read.
