Bryan Haynes will be speaking on a panel titled: “Exploring Tobacco Product Standards: Opportunities and Challenges” The panel is described as follows:
Developing tobacco product standards under section 907 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act presents opportunities and challenges to FDA and to tobacco product manufacturers. Panelists in this session will present on a variety of issues related to defining standards for different tobacco products, currently regulated under the Act and likely to be regulated in the future. Issues for discussion will include characterizing flavors in cigars, menthol in cigarettes and other tobacco products, and a comparative discussion of global standards.
