SILVER SPRING, Md. — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) is looking for two individuals to serve as voting members on its Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee.

Those interested can self-nominate or be nominated by any interested person or organization. Nominations received before Nov. 25 will be given first consideration, the FDA said.

The committee advises the CTP in its responsibilities related to the regulation of tobacco products. Its tasks include reviewing and evaluating the safety, depending and health issues concerning tobacco products and providing appropriate advice, information and recommendations to the FDA commissioner.

The committee will submit reports or recommendations on tobacco related topics including:

  • The effect of the use of menthol cigarettes on the public health.
  • The nature and effect of the use of dissolvable tobacco products on public health.
  • The effects of the alteration of nicotine yields from tobacco products and whether there is a threshold level below which nicotine yields do not produce dependence on the tobacco product involved.  
  • Any application submitted by a manufacturer for a modified risk tobacco product.
