FDA Introduces New Form for Reporting Tobacco Violations

12/07/2012

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) has added another tool to catch tobacco violations.

This week, the CTP unveiled a new Potential Tobacco Product Violations Reporting form, which provides the public and other stakeholders with another option for reporting potential violations of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) and related regulations.

According to the FDA, "by making it easier for anyone to report potential violations of the Tobacco Control Act and related regulations, [the agency] is better able to monitor compliance with the laws, help reduce the health burden of tobacco use on the American public, and protect America's youth."

Among the questions on Potential Tobacco Product Violations Reporting form, the FDA asks the date of the potential violation, the location of the potential violation and what the potential violation may be. The new form is available for download on the FDA's website.
