FDA Tobacco Compliance Webinars

FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) hosts a series of webinars on federal tobacco regulations to provide compliance education and information to retailers and small business manufacturers.      

Manufacturers and Importers

The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) defines a tobacco product manufacturer as any person, including any repacker or relabeler, who:

  • Manufactures, fabricates, assembles, processes, or labels a tobacco product; or
  • Imports a finished tobacco product for sale or distribution in the United States


It is illegal for a retailer to sell any tobacco product – including cigarettes, cigars and e-cigarettes – to anyone under 21

After July 13, 2022, a non-tobacco nicotine product can only be legally marketed in the United States if it has received a marketing granted order (MGO) from FDA. Without this MGO, a product is in violation of the law and its manufacturer, retailer, distributor, or importer may be subject to FDA enforcement.
