In March 2020, FDA finalized the “Required Warnings for Cigarette Packages and Advertisements” rule, establishing 11 new cigarette health warnings, consisting of textual warning statements accompanied by color graphics, in the form of concordant photorealistic images, depicting the negative health consequences of cigarette smoking. These new required warnings depict some of the lesser-known, but serious health risks of smoking.
FDA has also published the “Required Warnings for Cigarette Packages and Advertisements – Small Entity Compliance Guide” to help small businesses understand and comply with the final rule.
Effective Date of Final Rule
On August 10, 2022, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas issued an order in the case of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. et al. v. United States Food and Drug Administration et al., No. 6:20-cv-00176, to further postpone the effective date of the “Required Warnings for Cigarette Packages and Advertisements” final rule. The new effective date of the final rule is October 6, 2023. Pursuant to the court order, any obligation to comply with a deadline tied to the effective date is similarly postponed. However, FDA strongly encourages entities to submit cigarette plans (as required by 21 CFR 1141.10(g)) as soon as possible, and no later than December 7, 2022.
