Overview of FDA Regulation of the Tobacco Industry Webinar – Research and Markets

June 24, 2016
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Overview of FDA Regulation of the Tobacco Industry – Webinar” webinar to their offering.

The Tobacco Control Act by FDA went into effect on June 22, 2009. Through this ruling, the FDA regulated cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco and smokeless tobacco, but in 2016, the FDA finalized a rule ‘Deeming Tobacco Products To Be Subject to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act’ which extends the FDA’s authority to include the regulation of electronic nicotine delivery systems (such as e-cigarettes and vape pens), all cigars, hookah (waterpipe) tobacco, pipe tobacco and nicotine gels, among others. The rule will go into effect on August 8, 2016.

This action is a milestone in consumer protection – going forward, the FDA will be able to:

– Review new tobacco products not yet on the market

– Help prevent misleading claims by tobacco product manufacturers

– Evaluate the ingredients of tobacco products and how they are made

– Communicate the potential risks of tobacco products

We will provide an overview of the regulations as they pertain to the manufacturing, marketing, distribution and other operational activities engaged by companies in the tobacco industry. This course will describe the best practices for developing a compliance strategy, including roles and responsibilities, and the policies and procedures that should be followed to ensure compliance.

Objectives of the Presentation:

Upon completion of this session, attendees will have an understanding of the FDA regulations for tobacco products, including the most current ones that will go into effect on August 8, 2016. The attendees will understand how the FDA regulations have evolved and what to expect with the latest final ruling.

In addition, you will learn about FDA oversight, how the agency operates, and what that means for your organization. You will gain knowledge about how to develop a compliance strategy, based on industry best practices that will minimize your operational costs while keeping you in good standing with the FDA.

Why Should you Attend:

You should attend this webinar if you work in the tobacco industry and are responsible for manufacturing, marketing, distribution or other functions that are now, or soon will be, regulated by FDA.

You should attend if you work for a tobacco company in the manufacturing, marketing, or distribution areas. You should also attend if you are a retailer or own a vape shop. An effective and compliant strategy is critical to any FDA-regulated organization, including those in the tobacco industry. Knowing the regulations is the first step toward ensuring compliance, and learning about industry best practices is a sure way to learn how to balance compliance with cost.
