The European Commission Health and Consumer Directorate-General (DG SANCO) commissioned RAND Europe, by way of the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers, in the framework of the Health Programme (No SC 2010 6306), to examine the availability, accessibility, usage and regulatory environment for novel and emerging tobacco, nicotine and related products in European Union Member States. Drawing on a range of methodological approaches involving systematic evidence review, key informant interviews with representatives from industry, including retailers, and a survey of stakeholders at national governmental and non-governmental agencies, this report will serve to inform further a possible revision of the Tobacco Products Directive 2001/37/EC. The report also provides an up-to-date overview of the evidence and basis for current tobacco and related products regulation that may be of interest to a wider audience interested in tobacco control policies.
