This Small Entity Compliance Guide is intended to help small businesses understand and comply with FDA's final rule deeming tobacco products to be subject to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) ( the Deeming Rule). The Deeming Rule extends FDA's tobacco product authorities in Chapter IX of the FD&C Act to include all tobacco products, except accessories of newly deemed tobacco products. The Deeming Rule also prohibits the sale of covered tobacco products to individuals under the age of 18, prohibits vending machine sales unless sold in adult-only facilities, and requires warning labels on packages and advertisements.
