The FDA regulates all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, hookah tobacco, and cigars. If you sell tobacco products, you must comply with all applicable federal laws and regulations for retailers. This course provides a summary of the federal rules relating to those selling tobacco and tobacco products in a retail store.
This course will teach you how to check the ID of a customer who wants to buy tobacco products, shows things to look out for, such as fake ID cards and signs of ID tampering, and explains how and when to refuse a sale.
The course also describes the current federal laws for selling tobacco. Please note the legal sales age has changed in many states from 18 to 21. As of October 2019, these states include: Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia and Washington.
This course will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) does not require retailers to implement retailer training programs for those who sell tobacco products. However, the statute does provide for lower civil money penalties for violations of access, sale, and distribution restrictions, advertising and promotion restrictions, and required warning statements promulgated under section 906(d) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act), as amended by the Tobacco Control Act, for retailers who have implemented a training program that complies with standards developed by FDA for such programs. FDA intends to promulgate regulations establishing standards for approved retailer training programs. In the interim, however, for retailers who wish to implement training programs, this guidance document explains:
- Recommendations for elements to be included in a retailer training program;
- Recommended hiring and management practices;
- The civil money penalties that may be assessed against retailers for violations of restrictions promulgated under section 906(d) of the FD&C Act, as amended by the Tobacco Control Act; and
- How the penalty structure differs for retailers with and without approved training programs.
FDA’s guidance documents, including this guidance, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities. Instead, guidances describe the Agency’s current thinking on a topic and should be viewed only as recommendations, unless specific regulatory or statutory requirements are cited. The use of the word should in Agency guidances means that something is suggested or recommended, but not required.
This course meets the training requirements as set by The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) - those who successfully complete this training may provide for lower civil money penalties for violations of received. As always, it is your responsibility to know and abide by local and federal laws, rules and regulations with regard to the sale of tobacco and tobacco products.
