This week, FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products updated the presentation of information about tobacco compliance check outcomes on the FDA website and expanded the information available. The newly-named Tobacco Compliance Check Outcomes database provides an enhanced user experience by housing results of all tobacco retail inspection outcomes in a single location. The database is designed to be a resource for a variety of audiences, including the general public, public health groups, and the tobacco industry.

The new database offers the ability to search for a variety of compliance and enforcement outcomes among both brick-and-mortar and online retailers, including warning letters, civil money penalties, and no-tobacco-sale orders. Previously, this information lived in various locations across the FDA website so the enhancement will allow site visitors to more easily find outcomes from FDA’s compliance and enforcement efforts of retailers in one centralized location.

This centralized database will be updated monthly with the latest compliance check outcomes. The enhancements to this database reflect CTP’s continued efforts to optimize transparency and communication with stakeholders. To view the database, visit https://timp-ccid.fda.gov/.
