About FDA

Cumulative number of Substantial Equivalence (SE) reports received (1)

Dictionary: New tobacco products may not be legally marketed in the United States unless FDA has issued an order permitting their marketing. However, if a new tobacco product was both commercially marketed after February 15, 2007 but before March 22, 2011 and a Substantial Equivalence Report was submitted by March 22, 2011, then this new tobacco product may continue to be marketed unless FDA issues an order that the new product is not substantially equivalent to an appropriate predicate product. (Section 905(j)). Substantial Equivalence (SE) Reports submitted to FDA after March 22, 2011 are defined as Regular Substantial Equivalence (SE) reports.

Information is current as of December 31, 2013

Total number of information request letters sent to regular report submitters in the month

Dictionary: The Tobacco Control Act requires manufacturers of new or modified tobacco products to submit a premarket application and obtain a market authorization order before they market their products. To introduce a new or modified tobacco product, an applicant must submit an application to FDA providing information on the product sufficient to allow the agency to determine that an order authorizing the product’s introduction is appropriate for the protection of the public health.

Alternately, a manufacturer may submit a substantial equivalence report demonstrating that its new tobacco product is substantially equivalent to a predicate tobacco product, as defined in the Tobacco Control Act. The Substantial Equivalence provision of the Tobacco Control Act requires nothing of manufacturers of unaltered tobacco products which were commercially available on February 15, 2007.

Additional information about premarket review requirements for tobacco products can be found on the CTP website

Monthly total of information request letters sent. Each submission is reviewed for completeness. Letters will be sent to manufacturers advising them of missing information in their submissions.
