HPM helps manufacturers and retailers understand FDA regulation of novel nicotine-containing products such as electronic nicotine delivery systems such as e-cigarettes, and traditional tobacco products including cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, cigars, pipe tobacco, and other tobacco products.
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009 radically changed the regulation of tobacco products. HPM has been involved in the process since before this law was passed. We have guided industry through meetings with FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products, the citizen petition process, and have helped clients participate in the development of regulations.
Our attorneys have a deep understanding of advertising and promotion restrictions and warning labels applicable to tobacco products.
We closely track the activities of the Tobacco Product Scientific Advisory Committee and relevant court proceedings. Our extensive experience with FDA-regulated product categories enables us to counsel clients on tobacco product requirements such as registration, product development, the different pathways to market, user fees, labeling, advertising, warnings, and other issues.Professionals
