Compliance and Enforcement Report
Despite progress, every day more than 1,300 people in this country die from smoking and each day more than 3,200 kids under the age of 18 smoke their first cigarette. That’s why tobacco product regulation and CTP’s compliance and enforcement program are so important.
CTP’s Office of Compliance and Enforcement (OCE) created a comprehensive report detailing its activities from its inception in 2009 through September 30, 2013. Their efforts help to ensure that regulated industry and regulated tobacco products are in compliance with the laws designed to protect the public health generally and to reduce tobacco use by minors.
