FDA Rules and Guidance Update

As part of the recently enacted Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act
[PDF—483.24 KB], 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 Rule Effective June 22, 2010
