Lukasz Gruszczynski: 'The FCTC dilemma on heated tobacco products' has been published

Lukasz Gruszczynski and Margherita Melillo recently published a new article entitled 'The FCTC dilemma on heated tobacco products' in Globalization & Health. (Impact factor: 2,650)

"In October 2018, the Conference of the Parties of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC or Convention) adopted its first decision on novel and emerging tobacco products, including heated tobacco products (HTPs). The decision remains ambiguous, e.g. by making a distinction between tobacco sticks and HTP devices. Against this background, the article seeks to answer two interrelated questions: whether and to what extent HTPs are covered by the FCTC, and whether regime provided by the Convention is suitable for their regulation."
