About FDA

Cumulative number of Civil Money Penalties filed for the FY against Tobacco Retailers (excluding internet based)

Dictionary: The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and provided the FDA with a broad set of sanctions for violations of the law. Such sanctions may include: warning letter, civil money penalty, import alert, seizure, injunction, and criminal prosecution.

Civil Money Penalties are assessed against tobacco product retailers not in compliance with tobacco product requirements. For more information about the agency’s current policies with respect to civil money penalties for retailers who are in violation, please see CTP’s website Guidance, Compliance & Regulatory Information, to find the guidance entitled, “Guidance for FDA and Tobacco Retailers Civil Money Penalties and No-Tobacco-Sale Orders For Tobacco Retailers.”
