Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) released anew form for reporting potential tobacco product violations. The form 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 with its new Potential Tobacco Product Violations Reporting form.
By making it easier for anyone to report potential violations of the Tobacco Control Act and related regulations, the agency says it can better
monitor compliance with the law.
“NACS is concerned that unleashing a vigilante force of untrained tobacco inspectors is counter-intuitive
given the tremendous reduction in youth access that has been achieved over the past 14 years due to voluntary training such as We Card, which has been embraced by the retail community,” said NACS Senior Vice President of Government Relations Lyle Beckwith.
