No. 11 - Technical Guideline for Sample Handling of Smokeless Tobacco and Smokeless Tobacco Products

May 2020 - second edition Ref. TTPA-176-2-CTG-11

The appropriate storage and preparation of tobacco samples is one of the most important factors with regard to the achievement of representative and reproducible test results. A laboratory can only produce high quality results if the integrity of samples is maintained.

This Technical Guideline for the handling of Smokeless Tobacco and Smokeless Tobacco Products (STPs) was developed to provide guidance to the tobacco industry and independent testing laboratories on sample storage and preparation of samples that have reached the laboratory.
