Center for Tobacco Products

The Center for Tobacco Products (CTP)[1] was established by the Food and Drug Administration as a result of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act[2] signed by President Obama in June 2009. The FDA center is responsible for the implementation of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act.

The smoking prevention and tobacco law establishes regulatory controls for tobacco products:[3]

  • Setting performance standards for tobacco products
  • Reviewing premarket applications for new and modified risk of tobacco products
  • Enforcing advertising and promotion restrictions for tobacco products

The U.S. mandated legislation is a historic milestone for the U.S. FDA. The enacted law will assist with the federal agency regulatory efforts and initiatives to curb the suspected health hazards for tobacco products on an annual basis.
