Submit comments on FDA review and evaluation of tobacco product applications

The FDA held a public meeting on “Tobacco Product Application Review” in October 2018. In addition to the public meeting, FDA opened a docket to receive feedback and comments on all aspects of the product review process. Submit comments online to docket FDA-2018-N-3504 through December 7, 2018.

FDA Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) hosts a series of webinars on federal tobacco regulations. These webinars are designed to provide FDA tobacco compliance education and information to retailers and to small business manufacturers.

Compliance Webinars for Tobacco Manufacturers and Retailers on the Final Rule Extending FDA Authority to All Tobacco Products

The FDA has finalized a rule—commonly referred to as the "deeming rule"—extending its authority to all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars, hookah tobacco, and pipe tobacco, among others.

The FDA's series of webinars will help tobacco retailers, importers, and manufacturers better understand the agency's regulatory authority. Participants will learn the steps they must take to comply with the rule's requirements for the marketing and sale of all tobacco products.
