HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AH86 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Tobacco Product Standard for Nicotine Level of Certain Tobacco Products 

This proposed rule would establish a product standard that would set a maximum nicotine level in certain combusted tobacco products so that they are minimally addictive. Such a standard, if ultimately promulgated, could help limit the addictiveness of the most toxic and widely used tobacco products, which would have significant public health benefits for youth, young adults, and adults, as well as potentially vast economic benefits. It would help to prevent experimenters (mainly youth) from initiating regular use and, therefore, from becoming regular users. It also would give addicted users the ability to quit more easily.
