Council on Graduate Medical Education; Request for Nominations, 46088-46089 [2016-16751]

Download as PDF 46088 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 136 / Friday, July 15, 2016 / Notices The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) (Pub. L. 111–31) added section 905 to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) (21 U.S.C. 387e), establishing requirements for tobacco product establishment registration and product listing. FDA revised the registration and listing guidance to include newly deemed tobacco products. Cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-your-own tobacco, and smokeless tobacco were immediately covered by FDA’s tobacco product authorities in chapter IX of the FD&C Act, including section 905, when the Tobacco Control Act went into effect. As for other types of tobacco products, section 901(b) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 387a) grants FDA authority to deem those products subject to chapter IX of the FD&C Act. Pursuant to that authority, FDA issued a proposed rule seeking to deem all other products that meet the statutory definition of tobacco product, set forth in section 201(rr) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 321(rr)) (except for accessories of those products) (79 FR 23142). After review and consideration of comments on the proposed rule, FDA published the final rule on May 10, 2016 (81 FR 28974) (‘‘the deeming rule’’) and it will become effective on August 8, 2016. As a result, owners and operators of domestic establishments engaged in the manufacture, preparation, compounding, or processing of tobacco products subject to the deeming rule are now required to comply with chapter IX of the FD&C Act, including the establishment registration and product listing requirements in section 905. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES II. Significance of Guidance This guidance is being issued consistent with FDA’s good guidance practices regulation (§ 10.115). The guidance represents the current thinking of FDA on registration and product listing for owners and operators of domestic tobacco product establishments. It does not establish any rights for any person and is not binding on FDA or the public. You can use an alternative approach if it satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations. III.
