ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to investigate tobacco control in the United States which provides a practical insight into Korea to reinforce national strategies. This report based on relative literatures, international convention on tobacco control and US legal materials. Resources from government websites and press release were used for the latest update. US FDA has the authority to regulate the manufacture, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. FDA is the very first agency throughout the world introducing the marketing order system for premarket tobacco applications. This science-based product regulation system is a powerful form of consumer protection by reviewing and evaluating tobacco products. This system have obtained the desired results to suppress marketing of tobacco products which failed to prove their ingredients, harmful constituents and the health effects of tobacco use. US FDA marketing order system on tobacco products will be the good reference for Korea. Hereafter continuous monitoring to the changes and development of the US system will be required.
