About the CTP
The FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) regulates the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products. CTP’s mission is to make tobacco-related death and disease part of America’s past, not America’s future, and, by doing so, ensure a healthier life for every family. The focus of CTP is on protecting America’s youth, providing information to help educate consumers, ensuring industry complies with the law, reviewing products, and conducting leading cutting-edge tobacco and nicotine-related research.
