Task Force on Roll-Your-Own (Fine-Cut) Tobacco (1999)
This report provides details of the technical studies carried out by the Task Force on Roll-Your-Own (Fine-Cut) Tobacco established by CORESTA, to meet the following defined objectives:
- To document how RYO smokers in different countries make their cigarettes.
- To establish the effects of materials and cigarette design on particulate matter and nicotine yields of RYO cigarettes.
- To make recommendations to the Smoke Study Group on the relevance to the consumer of proposed standard procedures.
- To consider the establishment of a recommended method to give meaningful comparisons among fine-cut tobaccos or fine-cut smoking articles (FCSAs).
The work carried out meets the first three of these objectives, and provides the basis for a standard method in line with the fourth.
