FDA Launches Searchable Tobacco Products Database

Today, FDA launched the Searchable Tobacco Products Database, a new user-friendly list of tobacco products — including e-cigarettes — that may be legally marketed in the United States.  The database is designed to serve the public — especially retailers — by providing this key information in a single location, with easy-to-use search capabilities.  The database, which can be accessed at www.fda.gov/searchtobacco will be updated on a monthly basis.

Within the database, FDA provides information on three categories of products:  1) new tobacco products that received marketing authorization through one of FDA’s three pathways to market a new tobacco product; 2) pre-existing tobacco products established through a voluntary determination program (commercially marketed as of Feb. 15, 2007); and 3) provisional tobacco products that were removed from review.

“CTP remains committed to enhanced transparency in a new way that is useful, timely, and user-friendly,” said Brian King, PhD., MPH, director of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products.  “We hope that this database will be an asset to stakeholders — including retailers — that will be used to help facilitate compliance with the law.”
