FDA Tobacco Retail Inspection Contracts

FDA issues contracts to assist with compliance check inspections of retail establishments.  FDA has a goal of establishing a contract, where feasible, with every U.S. State and Territory, but some States and Territories, for a variety of reasons, have been unable to do so. Therefore, FDA has awarded contracts to third- party entities that are able to hire commissionable inspectors to do compliance check inspections of tobacco retailers in those states and territories where FDA has not been able to contract with a state agency. FDA has further expanded this program by awarding retail inspection contracts to Tribes to conduct retail inspections within their jurisdictions. In addition, FDA may also conduct its own investigations using FDA personnel.
