THIS IS OUR WATCH
To give retailers all the tools they need to comply with tobacco regulations, the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products has developed an education program called “This is Our Watch.” The program helps tobacco retailers better understand FDA tobacco regulations, the importance of compliance, and the greater purpose — protecting the nation’s youth from the harms of tobacco use. Retailers are encouraged, but not required, to display “This is Our Watch” materials in stores. Participation is voluntary. To request program materials, please contact our office.
