Counterfeit Cigarettes have become a menace to fiscal and public health. Counterfeit cigarettes rob federal, state and local governments of vast amounts of tax revenues and at the same time expose smokers to risks an order of magnitude greater than those resulting from legal tobacco. This forum is dedicated to providing a continuous update of the policy and scientific data need to encourage and assist federal, state and local enforcement officials to enforce statutes which curtail the sale and consumption of counterfeit cigarettes.
This Forum is managed by the Center for Regulatory Effectiveness, a regulatory watchdog founded and managed by former regulatory officials of the White House Office of Management and Budget. CRE manages a number of websites dedicated to increasing the transparency of the federal regulatory process.
The Forum is an Interactive Public Docket (IPD) which allows the public to communicate with the TPSAC on a 24/7 basis. The Forum receives two types of comments.
