FDA Conducts Webinar on PMTA Process Update

On Friday, June 11, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Office of Science held a live webinar titled, “Deemed Product Review: A Conversation with the Center for Tobacco Products Office of Science.” The purpose of the webinar was to provide an update on, and information about, the agency’s scientific review of pre-market tobacco applications for “deemed products” which include cigars, pipe tobacco, hookah tobacco and electronic cigarette/nicotine vapor products. The main focus of the webinar was on the application intake process, application review progress, and allocation of agency review resources.
