FDA Regulation of Tobacco Sales

The FDA regulates all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, cigars, and hookah tobacco.  To help retailers better understand their responsibilities under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) and comply with the law, FDA provides webinars, training videos, and guidance documents. These resources help to educate retailers and their employees about the Tobacco Control Act and tobacco regulations. FDA also works with state regulators to enforce federal regulations to reduce the harm of tobacco.  Educational materials and training are available on the FDA's website at
