FDA Regulations Announced, Press Conference At 10:30am

According to published reports Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and FDA Administrator Robert Califf, a physician, are scheduled to brief reporters at 10:30 a.m. Thursday. HHS officials would not comment on the topic of the briefing.

Currently there is a bill working its way through the House that would save premium cigars and change the predicate date from 2007 to the date FDA Regulations are announced (today).

The FDA has chosen Option 1 which will force cigar companies to get FDA approval on all brands and blends to come after 2007. Brands prior to that date are grandfathered in and will be allowed to exist without FDA regulations, while brands after the predicate date will be required to undergo FDA testing before being allowed on the market.

Details of the bill can be read at: https://thecigarauthority.com/fda-regulations-text/
