Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Addison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellFBI reaches out to second Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez How the Trump tax law passed: The lobbying frenzy McConnell says he won’t back Schumer for Senate Dem leader MORE (R-Ky.) has called on the president to provide more details about how the Trump administration plans to regulate the new dispenser technology.
Trump’s executive order would allow dispensers to be made in “any state” that has “a valid state-issued license.”
The White House is currently in the process of finalizing the regulations.
The administration also said the devices could be used in a range of industries, including food, construction and “other areas that are not covered by the FDA regulations.”
However, the administration is now warning that dispensers in the U.S. are subject to the same FDA regulations as dispensers manufactured overseas.
“As of January 1, 2020, the President has directed the Food and Drug Administration to develop a plan to ensure the safety, effectiveness and compatibility of these products,” the White House said in a statement.
“This includes ensuring that the FDA is not required to monitor, evaluate or control the efficacy or safety of any product made by a manufacturer located in a foreign country, and to review products produced by any manufacturer located abroad for safety, efficacy and compatibility with FDA regulations, including those in place today.”
The White House also reiterated that the administration would not permit foreign manufacturers to import their products into the U, citing the FDA’s ability to control importation of new products from the U to address safety issues.
“To the extent that foreign manufacturers are able to import new products into this country, the FDA must be able to control imports,” the statement said.
“The Administration will continue to ensure that all manufacturers comply with FDA requirements, and that their products meet FDA safety standards.”
