WHO Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation (TobReg) Meeting
Date: 25-27 July 2007 Place: Stanford University, California, United States of America
TFI convened the fourth meeting of the WHO Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation (TobReg). Financial support for the meeting was provided by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare of Japan.
Expected meeting outcomes were to develop the following:
- TobReg Recommendation on the setting of upper limits (taking into account the current technical capacity of the industry in reducing contents and emissions);
- TobReg Recommendation or Scientific Advisory Note on Tobacco Harm Reduction, including issues such as potential reduced exposure products (PREPs) and smokeless tobacco products; and,
- TobReg Recommendation or Advisory Note on fire safer cigarettes.
Participants included TobReg members and invited observers who are internationally renowned product regulation experts. For further information, please contact Ms. Gemma Vestal at email@example.com
