This Week in CTP – Compliance Webinar & Break the Chain of Tobacco Addiction Retailer Education Campaign Self-Mailer

CTP hosted a compliance training webinar Wednesday, November 7th, titled “CTP Compliance Update on Internet-Related Warning Letters.” CTP conducts routine surveillance of sales, distribution, marketing, and advertising activities related to regulated tobacco products on the Internet. We have issued Warning Letters to Internet tobacco retailers for violations of the Tobacco Control Act and its implementing regulations. The webinar provided an overview of these Warning Letters and some of the most common violations that have been identified to date. Visit our Tobacco Compliance Webinar page to view the archived presentation.

The Break the Chain of Tobacco Addiction Retailer Education Campaign self-mailer provides retailers with an easy-to-read summary of the federal tobacco laws, as well as contact information for CTP. It is available in English and Spanish and can be downloaded or ordered free through our online clearinghouse. Visit our Break the Chain page for more retailer education resources and to learn more about federal tobacco regulations and guidance.
