Committee on the Illicit Tobacco Market: Collection and
Analysis of the International Experience

Meeting #2 – Open Session
January 23, 2014

National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Building
Lecture Room
2101 Constitution Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20148

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has charged the National Research Council (NRC) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) with assessing the state of knowledge regarding the illicit tobacco market and of policy mechanisms for addressing the illicit tobacco trade. At the open session of this meeting, the NRC-IOM study committee will hear about enforcement and policy experiences at the federal, state, local, and international levels (with an emphasis on the domestic U.S. experience; the international experience will receive more attention at the open session of a subsequent committee meeting). This discussion will help inform the deliberations of the study committee and assist it in drafting its report, and it will also allow stakeholders to share valuable information with one another.
