Since the responsibilities of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) extend to Puerto Rico, we understand that new tobacco and nicotine products intended to be marketed within Puerto Rico will need to go through the FDA’s premarket tobacco application (PMTA) process.

Nicotine pouches are not subject to any retail, advertising or public place usage restrictions.

Unlike nicotine pouches, oral tobacco is taxed in Puerto Rico.

This report provides a summary of the current regulatory framework in place for oral tobacco and nicotine pouches in Puerto Rico, covering all policy areas from taxation and advertising to labelling, notification and retail channels.
