Regulations specify the details and requirements necessary to implement and to enforce legislation enacted by Congress. Because of their importance, an agency’s rulemaking plans are of great interest to a wide range to stakeholders, therefore the Federal Government publishes a semi-annual agenda of upcoming regulations in the Federal Register, usually in the Spring and Fall. As part of FDA’s Transparency Initiative and FDA Transparency Results Accountability Credibility Knowledge Sharing (TRACK), we are also providing periodic updates on FDA’s upcoming rulemakings. On this Web page, we will maintain an updated agenda of the agency’s upcoming rulemakings.

Regulation of Flavors in Tobacco Products; Request for Information 

0910-AH60

ANPRM

Evidence shows that flavored tobacco products, especially those that are sweet or are described with terms attractive to kids, appeal to youth and also shows that youth may be more likely to initiate tobacco use with such products. Evidence also shows that the presence of flavors in some non-combustible tobacco products may play a role in helping some tobacco users transition away from combusted tobacco products, which are likely the most harmful currently marketed form of nicotine delivery for an individual user. This Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking will seek information on how it might regulate flavors in tobacco products to limit appeal to youth while taking into account the potential role that some flavors may play in helping some users transition away from combusted products. Certain flavors are generally recognized as appealing to youth, such as gummy bear and cotton candy, while others, such as coffee and cinnamon, may not be as obvious. In this notice, FDA would request information on how best to regulate flavors in tobacco products to limit appeal to youth and prevent youth initiation and use of tobacco products..

Tobacco Product Standard for Nicotine Level of Certain Tobacco Products; Request for Information 

0910-AH86

ANPRM

This ANPRM would explain that FDA is considering whether it would be appropriate to develop a product standard that would set a maximum nicotine level in certain combusted tobacco products so that they are minimally addictive.  Such a standard, if ultimately promulgated, could help limit the addictiveness of the most toxic and widely used tobacco products, which would have significant public health benefits for youth, young adults, and adults, as well as potentially vast economic benefits.  This ANPRM would request comments, data, research results, and other information that could inform regulatory actions FDA might take with respect to the nicotine level of certain combusted tobacco products.

Premium Cigars; Request for Scientific Information 

0910-AH88

ANPRM

The notice would request information on how premium cigars should be defined, the health effects of these products, and their patterns of use. In the proposed deeming rule, FDA had requested scientific information that would support consideration of exempting premium cigars from regulation. FDA received comments claiming that the health risks associated with cigar use generally, or with the use of premium cigars in particular, are not significant because of the way these products are used. Specifically, commenters claimed that these products are not used by youth and young adults, they are not used frequently, and they are not always inhaled. However, the information in the comments did not provide an adequate scientific basis or public health rationale to support excluding these products from regulation.

Pediatric Study Plan Requirements for New Drug and Biologics License Applications

0910-AG93

Proposed Rule

FDA is proposing requirements for the content of initial pediatric study plans required to be submitted under the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) which requires sponsors of certain applications to submit a plan for studying their drug/biologic in pediatric patients; a primary factor in the increased ability to provide labeling and other drug information for pediatric patients for many more drug and biological products. Developing drugs for pediatric populations presents unique challenges for drug manufacturers. Although the plans are required to be submitted based on the statutory provision, a regulation is required and will provide clarity, specificity, and direction to sponsors, as well as assist FDA in ensuring compliance, and ultimately help to better advance the study of drugs in pediatric populations to support advancing pediatric indications.

Proposed Rule

 FDA is proposing to amend its regulation on classifying medical products as drugs, devices, biological products or combination products (products composed of two or more different types of medical products, e.g., a drug and device) and on Center assignment and regulation of combination products, in two respects. First, it would remove a duplicative administrative appeals process for appealing product classification and assignment determinations, streamlining the process for appealing these determinations for product sponsors and FDA staff and making the process more efficient. Second, it would also enhance regulatory clarity and efficiency by removing a provision that might be interpreted inconsistently with new requirements under the 21st Century Cures Act, which address when combination products can be marketed under a single application for the complete combination product or under separate applications for each constituent part (e.g., the drug and device) of the combination product.None5/31/2018
