Industry Post Regulation – Has the TPD worked?
13:40 - 13:55
Industry, Policy and Regulation
TPD implementation has resulted in more than 100,000 notifications of individual products across the region at enormous cost to the industry in notification fees, toxicology and testing. Although this has given consumers more confidence that the products they are using are safe, poor enforcement, gaps in the regulations and consumer demand have led to products sitting outside the TPD, such as “shake and vape”. Newly launched heated tobacco products with well-funded marketing campaigns give consumers more choice and may encourage switching from combustible tobacco but will change the regulatory and business backdrop for the sector.
