Opening Address: An Update on FDA’s Comprehensive Plan on Nicotine and Tobacco
08:20 - 09:00
On July 28, 2017, FDA announced a new comprehensive plan for tobacco and nicotine regulation. The plan is a multi-year roadmap to significantly reduce tobacco-related disease and death. This approach places nicotine, and the issue of addiction, at the center of FDA’s regulatory efforts. FDA acknowledges that nicotine is delivered through products on a continuum of risk and cigarettes are the most harmful. Therefore, FDA must seek to strike an appropriate balance between smart regulation and encouraging the innovation of satisfying, less harmful products. This presentation will provide an update on the status of the core elements of the July 28th announcement.
