About FDA

Cumulative number of Retailer Compliance Check Inspections completed in the Fiscal Year

Dictionary: Compliance check inspections of tobacco product retailers are conducted to determine a retailer’s compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (Act), as amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) and its implementing and applicable regulations such as the regulation found at Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 1140 (21 C.F.R. Part 1140).

Retailers play an important role in protecting the health of America’s youth by not selling, marketing, or advertising cigarettes or smokeless tobacco products to underage children and adolescents. Tobacco use causes more than 400,000 deaths each year, and because a large majority of Americans start smoking before reaching the age of 18, many of these deaths can be prevented by discouraging young people from initiating tobacco use.
