Will this regulation apply to small businesses (e.g., small tobacco manufactures)?
The graphic health warnings called for by the Tobacco Control Act are required to be on all cigarette packages and in all cigarette ads regardless of who makes the product.
FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) has established a small business assistance program in an effort to help small businesses access up-to-date information and comply with the requirements of the Tobacco Control Act.
