Implementation of Statutory Amendments Requiring the Qualification of Manufacturers and Importers of Processed Tobacco and Other Amendments Related To Permit Requirements, and the Expanded Definition of Roll-Your-Own Tobacco; Extension of Comment Period
In response to a request filed on behalf of several industry members, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau is reopening the comment period for Notice No. 95, a notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register on June 22, 2009. The proposed rule seeks comments on a concurrently published temporary rule implementing permit requirements for manufacturers and importers of processed tobacco and an expansion of the definition of roll-your-own tobacco adopted in the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009. The text of the regulations contained in the temporary rule serves as the text of the proposed regulations.
