US FDA deeming regulations inch forward

The US Office of Management and Budget’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) on Monday received from the Food and Drug Administration proposed regulations on tobacco and related products that the agency does not already regulate, according to a Reginfo.gov notification relayed by the TMA.

In April last year, the FDA, which already regulates cigarettes, cigarette tobacco and smokeless tobacco, said it was issuing proposed deeming regulations covering products such as cigars, pipe tobacco, hookahs, nicotine gels, electronic cigarettes and certain dissolvable products that are not regarded as smokeless tobacco.

OIRA reviews agency draft regulations before publication.

There was no indication of when the regulations would be published.
