Proposed Project: List of Ingredients Added to Tobacco in the Manufacture of Smokeless Tobacco Products—(0920-0338)—Extension—Office of Smoking and Health (OSH)—Oral use of smokeless tobacco represents a significant health risk which can cause cancer and a number of noncancerous oral conditions, and can lead to nicotine addiction and dependence. Furthermore, smokeless tobacco use is not a safe substitute for cigarette smoking.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) has been delegated the authority for implementing major components of the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) tobacco and health program, including collection of tobacco ingredients information. HHS's overall goal is to reduce death and disability resulting from cigarette smoking and other forms of tobacco use through programs of information, education and research.
The Comprehensive Tobacco Health Education Act of 1986 (15 U.S.C. 4401 et seq., Pub.L. 99-252) requires each person who manufactures, packages, or imports smokeless tobacco products to provide the Secretary of Health and Human Services with a list of ingredients added to tobacco in the manufacture of smokeless tobacco products. This legislation also authorizes HHS to undertake research, and to report to the Congress (as deemed appropriate), on the health effects of the ingredients. The total annual burden is 286 hours.
The annualized burden is 286.
