Smokeless tobacco products contain carcinogens which can cause cancer and a number of non-cancerous oral conditions, as well as leading to nicotine addiction and dependence. Furthermore, SLT use is not a safe substitute for cigarette smoking. Adolescents who use smokeless tobacco are more likely to become cigarette smokers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office on Smoking and Health (OSH), has primary responsibility for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) smoking and health program. HHS’s overall goal is to reduce death and disability resulting from the use of smokeless tobacco products and other forms of tobacco through programs of information, education and research. The Comprehensive Smokeless Tobacco Health Education Act of 1986 (CSTHEA, 15 U.S.C. 4401 et seq., Pub. L. 99–252) requires each person who manufactures, packages, or imports smokeless tobacco products to provide the Secretary of HHS with a list of ingredients added to tobacco in the manufacture of smokeless tobacco products. CSTHEA further requires submission of the quantity of nicotine contained in each smokeless tobacco product.

Background and Brief Description

    The oral use of smokeless tobacco (SLT) products represents a 
significant health risk. Smokeless tobacco products contain carcinogens 
which can cause cancer and a number of non-cancerous oral conditions, 
as well as leading to nicotine addiction and dependence. Furthermore, 
SLT use is not a safe substitute for cigarette smoking. Adolescents who 
use smokeless tobacco are more likely to become cigarette smokers.
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office on 
Smoking and Health (OSH), has primary responsibility for the Department 
of Health and Human Services (HHS) smoking and health program. HHS's 
overall goal is to reduce death and disability resulting from the use 
of smokeless tobacco products and other forms of tobacco through 
programs of information, education and research.
    The Comprehensive Smokeless Tobacco Health Education Act of 1986 
(CSTHEA, 15 U.S.C. 4401 et seq., Pub. L. 99-252) requires each person 
who manufactures, packages, or imports smokeless tobacco products to 
provide the Secretary of HHS with a list of ingredients added to 
tobacco in the manufacture of smokeless tobacco products. CSTHEA 
further requires submission of the quantity of nicotine contained in 
each smokeless tobacco product. Finally, the legislation authorizes HHS 
to undertake research, and to report to Congress (as deemed 
appropriate) discussing the health effects of these ingredients.
    HHS has delegated responsibility for implementing the required 
information collection to CDC's Office on Smoking and Health. 
Respondents are not required to submit specific forms; however, they 
are required to meet reporting guidelines and to submit the ingredient 
report by chemical name and Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) 
Registration Number, consistent with accepted reporting practices for 
other companies that are required to report ingredients added to other 
consumer products. Typically, respondents submit a summary report to 
CDC with the ingredient information for multiple products, or a 
statement that there are no changes to their previously submitted 
ingredient report. Respondents may submit the required information to 
CDC through a designated representative. The information collection is 
subject to strict confidentiality provisions.
    Ingredient reports for new SLT products are due at the time of 
first importation. Thereafter, ingredient reports are due annually on 
March 31. Information is submitted to OSH by mailing a written report 
on the respondent's letterhead, which may be accompanied by a Compact 
Disc (CD), three-inch floppy disk, or thumb drive. Electronic mail
