FTC Seeks Comment on Proposal to Rescind Cigarette Testing Guidance

The Federal Trade Commission is seeking public comment on its proposal to rescind its guidance that generally permits factual statements about tar and nicotine yields when such statements are based on a single standardized test method--the Cambridge Filter Method, also frequently referred to as the FTC Test Method."

FTC is seeking comment on the following specific questions and on any other issues relevant to the policies stated in this notice: What effects, if any, would the commission's proposal likely have on consumers' purchases of cigarettes and/or their smoking behavior? Will these changes be likely to affect smoking intensity, brand choice, and/or the decision whether to quit smoking, and if so, how? How else would the proposal likely affect consumers?

All timely and responsive public comments, whether filed in paper or electronic form, will be considered by the commission, and will be available to the public on the FTC Web site, to the extent practicable, at www.ftc.gov.
