This Week in CTP – Tobacco Product Manufacturing Facility Visit Program & Break the Chain of Tobacco Addiction Pledge

CTP is looking for facilities to volunteer to participate in its Tobacco Product Manufacturing Facility Visit program. This program is intended to give FDA staff an opportunity to visit facilities involved in the manufacturing of tobacco products, including any related laboratory testing, to observe the manufacturing operations of the tobacco industry – from the receipt of raw materials to the distribution of finished products – and to learn about the manufacturing practices and processes unique to regulated tobacco products and their facilities. These facility visits are educational and not intended to include or replace official FDA inspections of facilities. Learn more about the Tobacco Product Manufacturing Facility Visit program and how facilities can sign up for the program! Registration for the program ends October 15.

Everyone plays a role in protecting kids from tobacco. Do your part by pledging today!
