ACTION: Notice. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), is announcing an invitation for participation in its voluntary Electronic Nicotine Delivery System (ENDS) Device and E-Liquid Manufacturer Site Tours Program.

The site tours in this program are not intended as regulatory inspections.

L. 111–31) (Tobacco Control Act) was signed into law, amending the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) by, among other things, adding a new chapter (chapter IX) granting FDA the authority to regulate tobacco product manufacturing, distribution, and marketing. The Tobacco Control Act provides FDA authority to regulate cigarettes, cigarette tobacco, roll-yourown tobacco, smokeless tobacco, and any other tobacco products that the Agency by regulation deems to be subject to the law. On May 10, 2016, FDA published a final rule entitled ‘‘Deeming Tobacco Products To Be Subject to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, as Amended by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act; Restrictions on the Sale and Distribution of Tobacco Products and Required Warning Statements for Tobacco Products’’ (81 FR 28974), which became effective on August 8, 2016. Under this rule, all products, such as ENDS, 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)), including components and parts, but excluding accessories of newly deemed products, are now subject to chapter IX of the FD&C Act. CTP’s Office of Science is conducting the ENDS Device and E-Liquid Manufacturer Site Tours Program to provide its staff an opportunity to visit facilities that develop, manufacture, or test ENDS devices or e-liquids (including pods or cartridges). The ENDS device and e-liquid facilities are regulated by FDA if they, among other things, manufacture products that meet the statutory definition of a ‘‘tobacco product’’ set forth in section 201(rr) of the FD&C Act. The site tours will aid the Agency in gaining a better understanding of the processes involved in developing, manufacturing, and E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
