FDA Tobacco Regulations Digital Communication Tools


Overview & Purpose

The FDA Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) has developed a suite of digital communication tools to help you learn about the latest federal tobacco rules and regulations including those restricting the sale and distribution of tobacco products.

These tools are part of a larger campaign titled “Break the Chain of Tobacco Addiction” targeted to retailers, trade associations, and state and local agencies working to prevent and control tobacco addiction. In addition to the digital tools below, CTP is employing traditional communication channels such as direct mail, earned media and stakeholder discussion sessions.
