FDA Center for Tobacco Products

What is the Food and Drug Administration Center for Tobacco Products?
President Obama signed the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (also called the "Tobacco Control Act") into law in June 2009, which led to the establishment of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products (CTP).

This means that the FDA now has the authority to regulate tobacco products, which may significantly impact labeling and marketing of tobacco products aimed at children and youth.

Several parts of this Act take time to enforce, but a few rules have already been put into practice. See the timeline for the Act. Utilize this tool to make the Tobacco Control Act easier to access, understand, search, and use.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Julius B. Richmond Center of Excellence has been involved in FDA CTP activities, including the activities below:
