American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association (AEMSA)

ENDS US 2018 Sponsors & Supporting Partners

Welcome to AEMSA.ORG, the first and only Manufacturers’ trade association completely dedicated to creating responsible and sustainable standards for the safe manufacturing of “e-liquids” used in e-vapor products (aka electronic cigarettes). AEMSA is an all-volunteer organization, formed by American manufacturers of e-liquids, to promote safety and responsibility through self-regulation.

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.

One of AEMSA’s primary goals is to provide consumers with confidence that our members’ products are manufactured with professionalism, accuracy and in a safe manner. As we approach three years in operation, we have clearly identified and established maintainable baselines for e-liquid manufacturers. Nicotine quality is easily verifiable (per batch) as are a variety of other components in the e-liquid manufacturing process: accuracy of content, quality of ingredients, clean manufacturing environments, appropriate (smear resistant) labels with warning content, child resistant caps, tamper evidence and batch traceability. Verifications are accomplished through a variety of approaches that include, but are not limited to: inspections (scheduled and surprise/un-scheduled – unfettered access), evidentiary documentation, random product analysis and more.
