Azim Chowdhury and Adam Susser will participate in the FDLI Tobacco Products and Regulation and Policy Conference, which will take place October 26-27, 2017 in Washington, DC.

This KH sponsored event will bring together public health advocates, researchers, manufacturers, lawyers, consumer interests, entrepreneurs, governmental agencies and others to effectively regulate the broad spectrum of tobacco and nicotine products in the US and globally.

Azim will participate on the panel “The Future of Deeming Regulations: Policy and Litigation” which will engage in discussions about the future of the deeming regulations, including issues pertaining to litigation, regulations, legislation, and the pros and cons of extending the implementation dates to 2021 and 2022. Attention will also be given to the appropriate use of flavoring in both e-cigarettes and cigars and how it can be ensured that children and youth are not being encouraged to use these products.

Adam will present on “Overview of Tobacco Law and Regulation” during the Introduction to U.S. Tobacco Law and Regulation seminar which will explore the essentials of tobacco law and regulation including the Deeming Rule, Premarket Tobacco Applications (PMTAs) and Modified Risk Tobacco Product Applications (MRTPAs), advertising and promotion, compliance, enforcement, and related issues.
