On June 11, 2021, the FDA Center for Tobacco Products Office of Science will host a meeting on the scientific review of deemed tobacco product applications.  The meeting will focus on the application intake process, review progress and allocation of review resources.  There will be a question and answer session with Office of Science staff.

We expect that the meeting will be informative for anyone with pending premarket tobacco applications, substantial equivalence reports or requests for exemption from substantial equivalence.  The update will be timely, as deemed tobacco applications submitted around the September 9, 2020 compliance deadline will have been pending for about nine months.  We look forward to hearing from the Office of Science regarding the status of its review progress.

Stakeholders can register for the meeting on FDA’s website here.
