SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

In the Federal Register of July 10, 2014 (79 FR 39302), FDA issued a final rule to add 21 CFR part 1150 to require domestic manufacturers and importers of tobacco products to submit to FDA information needed to calculate the amount of user fees assessed under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. In compliance with section 212 of the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (Pub. L. 104-121), FDA is making available this SECG stating in plain language the legal requirements of the July 10, 2014, final rule, set forth in 21 CFR part 1150.

FDA is issuing this SECG as level 2 guidance consistent with FDA's good guidance practices regulation (21 CFR 10.115(c)(2)). The SECG represents the Agency's current thinking on this topic. It does not create or confer any rights for or on any person and does not operate to bind FDA or the public. An alternative approach may be used if such approach satisfies the requirements of the applicable statutes and regulations.
