AEMSA – An Association Dedicated To Ensuring E-Liquid Standards

AEMSAHave you ever considered switching from traditional cigarettes to an electronic cigarette but wondered what you may really be buying, and consuming? After all, how do you know what is really in e-liquid used in e-cigs, and how do you know that it’s actually safe for human consumption, in a world where crazy concoctions like synthetic marijuana (known as K2) and bath salts are sold and consumed by the buyer with sometimes deadly consequences? Thanks to the American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association, or AEMSA, you can put aside your fears.

AEMSA is an organization comprised solely of volunteers who are dedicated to setting standards for the safe manufacturing of e-liquids. The main goal of AEMSA, or at least one of their main goals, is to gain the consumer’s confidence and trust that they are purchasing a product that is safely and accurately manufactured
by professionals in a safe and sanitary setting. In’s own words:

“Our members believe we have a responsibility to self-regulate the e-liquid manufacturing process based on professional criteria. AEMSA aims to accomplish this by creating, implementing and upholding standards for the manufacture of e-liquids.”

According to the website, AEMSA’s Core Beliefs are as follows:

➢ We have a responsibility to verify the accuracy of any nicotine content in the products we distribute.
➢ We have a responsibility to verify the accuracy of any nicotine content in the products we distribute.
➢ We have a responsibility to prepare our products in a clean, sanitary and safe environment.
➢ We have a responsibility to ensure our products are packaged and delivered in a safe manner.
➢ We have a responsibility to provide a level of transparency into the monitoring and verification process.

AEMSA estimates that approximately 5 million people worldwide are now using electronic cigarettes, and that number is continually rising. Currently, e-liquids and e-cigarettes are not regulated by government authorities; however, a Court ruling concluded the FDA can regulate and e-cigarettes as tobacco products. To date, the FDA is not regulating e-cigs or e-liquids. AEMSA recognizes the fact that e-liquid contains nicotine but does not agree that e-cigs or e-liquid are tobacco products.

Much scientific testing has been done on e-cigs and e-liquid, the effects of the product on one’s health, and the possibility of effects from second hand vapor. AEMSA supports testing but firmly believes regulations should be set on the e-liquid itself, since it is the substance that is being inhaled and exhaled, and, that e-liquid is in a category all its own.

According to the website, “AEMSA believes e-liquid, as an entirely new consumable product category, requires a new approach to regulation. AEMSA acknowledges the reality that governmental regulation is most likely on the immediate horizon and advocates for reasonable and practical regulation.”

AEMSA was created to regulate the standards of e-liquid and give consumers a degree of confidence in the e-liquid products they are purchasing. AEMSA hopes to be involved by contributing and assisting in any governmental regulations of e-liquids.

AEMSA was created by American e-liquid manufacturers and invites other American e-liquid manufacturers who choose to meet the standards set by AEMSA to join. For more information, visit their website.
