One-Day Conference on the FDA Deeming Rule and Its Impact

Tobacco Merchants Association's "How to Guide on the FDA Deeming Rule"

May 27, 2016 (Princeton, NJ via PRNewswire) -- The Tobacco Merchant Association (TMA) has announced that it is hosting a "How to Guide on the FDA Deeming Rule" with leading legal, scientific and regulatory affairs experts who will help you address the applications you need to file with FDA's Center for Tobacco Products to ensure your products stay on the market. This one-day program begins with a morning session of several panels, each addressing a critical aspect of the Deeming Rule. The goal is to provide a practical guide for TMA member and non-member companies to ensure compliance for each SKU sold by each company. Break-out sessions in the afternoon are focused on product specific strategies by product sectors and cover premium and machine-made cigars, pipe tobacco, and e-Vapor products. Opportunities will be presented to help facilitate needed research to support both Substantial Equivalence and Premarket Tobacco Product Applications. Let the experts help make this process a bit simpler and less costly in both time and money.

The event, open to TMA members and non-members, will be held on June 9, 2016 at the Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, Virginia, a short 10 minute drive from Dulles airport.
