Strategies to Minimize Risk and Protect Public Health

Post market compliance responsibilities for manufacturers of consumer next generation nicotine products (NGPs) and medicinal nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) in the U.S. are complex.   They require multidisciplinary teams within your business to collaborate on a quality control and testing strategy that gathers, analyzes, and reports data around various critical areas of regulatory concern, such as product performance and user behavior. The requirement can also extend to record-keeping on marketing messaging, advertising, and retail execution.   

This means your nicotine product must be monitored throughout its entire life cycle, and appropriate strategies must be implemented to minimize the risk to users and protect public health. 


Building a Post Market Compliance Strategy for the U.S.

Post market compliance is required in the U.S. for medicinal NRT and consumer NGPs with a PMTA marketing granted order.  

Building an effective post market compliance strategy for the lifetime of your nicotine product will require a comprehensive quality control release testing program, the monitoring of yellow card adverse events and suspected adverse events, and conducting behavioral studies to ensure vulnerable populations are not using your product. It may also be necessary to monitor and keep a record of marketing and advertising activities. 

Our scientific and regulatory consultants have extensive experience across consumer NGPs and medicinal NRT. They can advise on all aspects of post market compliance relating to nicotine delivery products in the U.S.

We recommend you consider compliance requirements at the early stage of product design and concept ideation to ensure your nicotine product has been developed with its future ongoing compliance requirements in mind.
