FDA Launches New Educational Tools for Cigar Retailers

To give retailers all the tools they need to comply with tobacco regulations, the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products has developed a new education program called “This is Our Watch.” This program helps tobacco retailers better understand FDA tobacco regulations, the importance of compliance, and the greater purpose—protecting the nation’s youth from the harms of tobacco use.

This is Our Watch” will launch nationally in November 2017. A full toolkit of resources will be available to retailers—including posters, stickers, age verification tools, and more—to help retailers better comply with federal tobacco regulations.

Free Program Materials – Coming November 2017

“This is Our Watch” program materials will include a mix of educational pieces for owners, managers, and clerks, as well as a variety of point-of-purchase tools to inform customers of the law and emphasize the retailer’s role:

  • Poster

  • Register stickers

  • Regulation flyers

  • Age verification calendar

  • Register signage

  • Instruction booklet
