Tobacco Products, User Fees, Requirements for the Submission of Data Needed to Calculate User Fees for Domestic Manufacturers and Importers of Tobacco Products
21 CFR Part 1150
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is issuing this proposed rule that would require domestic tobacco product manufacturers and importers to submit information needed to calculate the amount of user fees assessed under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act). The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has been collecting this information and providing FDA with the data FDA needs to calculate the amount of user fees assessed to tobacco product manufacturers and importers. USDA intends to cease collecting this information starting in fiscal year 2015 (October 2014). Consistent with the requirements of the FD&C Act, we are proposing to require the submission of this information to FDA instead of USDA. We are taking this action to ensure that FDA continues to have the information we need to calculate, assess, and collect user fees.
