Topic Background:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now proposed to deem products meeting the statutory definition of “tobacco product,” except accessories of a proposed deemed tobacco product, to be subject to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act).

The Tobacco Control Act gives FDA the authority to regulate the manufacture, labeling, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products in the United States. Specifically, although a “tobacco product” is defined broadly, in pertinent part, as “any product made or derived from tobacco that is intended for human consumption,” the law only provides FDA with authority to regulate, through the its new Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco. However, any “other tobacco products,” such as electronic cigarettes and their components may become subject to regulation if FDA “deems” such products to be subject to the new law. Option 1 of the proposed Deeming Regulation would extend the Agency's “tobacco product” authorities in the FD&C Act to all other categories of products (including e-cigarettes), except accessories of a proposed deemed tobacco product, that meet the statutory definition of “tobacco product” in the FD&C Act. Option 2 of the proposed rule would extend the Agency's “tobacco product” authorities to all other categories of products, except premium cigars and the accessories of a proposed deemed tobacco product, that meet the statutory definition of “tobacco product” in the FD&C Act.

FDA also is proposing to prohibit the sale of “covered tobacco products” to individuals under the age of 18 and to require the display of health warnings on cigarette tobacco, roll-your own tobacco, and covered tobacco product packages and in advertisements.
