Assessing Product Use Behaviour and Exposure: Definitions and Methods

PUB / BMK Technical Report

October 2022 Ref. PUB-BMK-273-1-CTR

Over the past number of years, the tobacco and/or nicotine containing product portfolio has expanded to include products such as e-vapour products, HTPs and nicotine-containing tobacco-free oral products. Although scientific papers and regulatory requirements/recommendations related to product use behaviour and exposure have been published for these novel nicotine-containing/tobacco products, there is great diversity in the terminology used to describe these types of products. The aim of this paper is to define the terms and methods used for assessing product use behaviour and exposure, with the objective of generating a uniform application of the terms used by scientists working in this field of research.
