    Many regulations worldwide require the reporting of tar, nicotine and carbon monoxide (TNCO) and set limits on their yields measured following the ISO smoking regime (ISO3308, 2012). The intention of FCTC Art. 9 is to characterise and monitor...

    (1) SEITA, Imperial Tobacco Group, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France; (2) Imperial Tobacco Limited, Bristol, U.K.
    We have recently shown that cigarette smoke yield (TNCO) depends linearly on the difference between the time of smouldering and the time of smoking using several machine smoking regimes (CORESTA 2012), with the filter ventilation open or blocked. It...

    (1) Imperial Tobacco Limited, Bristol, U.K.; (2) SEITA, Imperial Tobacco Group, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France
    Lower Ignition Propensity (LIP) is a product safety standard intended to increase the probability that a cigarette will self-extinguish under strictly controlled laboratory conditions. LIP compliance indicates that the probability that a cigarette...

    LIP cigarettes: Proposal for an alternative sampling design

    VERRON T.(1); CAHOURS X.(1); COLARD S.(2)
    (1) SEITA, Imperial Tobacco Group, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France; (2) Imperial Tobacco Limited, Bristol, U.K.
    Low ignition propensity cigarettes are intended to increase the chances of self-extinguishment under laboratory conditions following the protocol detailed in either ISO 12863:2010 test method or ASTM E2187-09. The safety requirements state that a...

    Tobacco reference materials: uses and limitations

    TEILLET B.(1); CAHOURS X.(1); COLARD S.(2)
    (1) SEITA, Imperial Tobacco Group, Fleury-les-Aubrais, France; (2) Imperial Tobacco Limited, Bristol, U.K.
    In the framework of the growing regulations of tobacco products, interest is expressed in wider characterisation in terms of contents and emissions. This leads to the need for analytical methods providing accurate, reliable and consistent data. This...
