In May 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the proposed flavored tobacco product standards [ie regulations] in the Federal Register.
The FDA is set to ban the legal sale of menthol in cigarettes and flavored cigars through licensed, regulated stores to your adult customers 21 and older.
A public comment period is open through July 5, 2022. It is critical for the FDA to hear directly from the businesses impacted by the regulations – manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, importers and retailers.
FDA is required to provide public comment opportunity on proposed regulations and FDA staff is required to read every comment submitted, so participating in the process and making your voice heard is extremely important.
Retailers and wholesalers – the below information is provided to assist you in writing and submitting comments. It is important that the FDA hear from those businesses affected by these proposed standards.
Information has been provided by Association Associate Members – Altria Client Services and Reynolds Marketing Services Company.
Please open the attachment and follow the links to submit comments no later than July 5, 2022.
