Proposed Project

List of Ingredients Added to Tobacco in the Manufacture of Smokeless Tobacco Products (OMB No. 0920-0338)—Extension—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

The Comprehensive Smokeless 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 (SLT) to provide the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) with a list of ingredients added to tobacco in the manufacture of smokeless tobacco products. This legislation also authorizes HHS to undertake research, and submit an annual report to Congress (as deemed appropriate) discussing the health effects of the ingredients in smokeless tobacco products. HHS has delegated responsibility for the implementation of this Act to CDC's Office on Smoking and Health (OSH). The oral use of SLT represents a significant health risk which can cause cancer and a number of non-cancerous oral conditions, and can lead to nicotine addition and dependence. Furthermore, SLT use is not a safe substitute for cigarette smoking. The total cost to respondents is their time to complete survey.
