FDA Rules and Guidance Update
As part of the recently enacted
Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act
, the FDA regulation of tobacco products immediately removes most federal pre-emption constraints on the ability of states and communities to restrict the time, manner, and place of tobacco advertising and promotions.
For questions regarding potential actions that may have been pre-empted previously, or could still be pre-empted even in the context of this new legislation, please send an e-mail to FDAQuestions@cdc.gov.
Questions received through this e-mail box will be used to support FDA in issuing appropriate rules and guidance but may not be answered individually.

FDA's Break the Chain of Tobacco Addiction Pledge
Pledge to Protect Kids from Tobacco
Take the pledge to support responsible tobacco retailing. Everyone, from retailers to physicians and parents to community leaders, plays a role in protecting kids from tobacco.
*Taking this pledge does not convey an endorsement by FDA. Retailers are required by law to comply with FDA tobacco regulations3, but are not required by law to take the pledge. This pledge does not have any effect on potential enforcement actions by FDA.
