The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act
In June 2009, the President signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) (Public Law 111-31) into law. This Act grants the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to regulate cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, smokeless tobacco, and roll-your-own tobacco. They oversee the manufacture, marketing and distribution of these tobacco products in order to protect public health and to reduce tobacco use by children and adolescents.
The Center for Tobacco Products at FDA was created to oversee and enforce the Tobacco Control Act.
The rule contains provisions designed to limit youth access to tobacco products, as well as restrictions on marketing to curb the appeal of these products to youth. Provisions of the new FDA regulations went into effect on June 22, 2010.
