Since 2006, the CORESTA Cigar Smoking Methods Sub-Group conducts periodic collaborative studies in order to improve repeatability and reproducibility measurement methods of different cigar sizes and types.

The purpose of the 2017 13th Collaborative Study (CS) was to re-establish mean values for NFDPM, nicotine and carbon monoxide for different sizes and types of cigar products and test pieces and to provide a tool for participating laboratories to prove competence in cigar smoke analysis.

It is planned to repeat the study on an annual basis.
