FDA To Reveal Time of Inspection In Letters

Warning letters to note the time of day an inspection took place following NATO request.

Going forward, the FDA plans to include the time a retail compliance inspection occurred in warning letters sent to retailers, National Association of Tobacco Outlets (NATO) reported.

The FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP) sent a letter, dated Feb. 1, to NATO announcing the change, after NATO requested that warning letters include the time of day that compliance inspections took place in a letter dated Jan. 16.

“This information would be helpful to retailers in determining which employees were working at the time of the inspection and facilitate taking any appropriate corrective actions,” NATO explained.

The FDA’s CTP is hosting a Webcast on Tuesday Feb. 7, titled  “What to Expect During a Tobacco Retailer Compliance Inspection”
