This Week in CTP – Third Party Governance of Industry-Sponsored Tobacco Products Research Docket & Webcast

Yesterday, FDA published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the opening of a public docket to obtain comments on the possible role of independent third parties in industry-sponsored tobacco product research.

The purpose of the docket is to provide an opportunity for all interested parties to comment on, among other things, potential models of third party governance, including whether there are existing third party governance models that may be applicable, and the types and aspects of industry-sponsored tobacco product research that could be subject to third party governance.  We encourage you to submit any available research or evidence to support your comments.

The comment period closes September 30, 2013. Visit the website to read the full notice and submit your comments.

Recently, CTP hosted a public workshop focused on the same topic. View the archived webcast and read more information on our website today!
