FDA Moves Forward on Implementation of Tobacco Law

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today announced an action regarding the implementation of the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. The Agency has officially established the Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC).

The Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee is tasked with providing advice, information, and recommendations to the Commissioner of Food and Drugs on health and other issues relating to tobacco products. The committee will be asked to consider a variety of topics including:

          o reporting on the impact of the use of menthol in cigarettes on the public health; and
          o advising on an application for modified risk (use of descriptors such as "light") tobacco product.
