Article 19 of the European Union Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) requires manufacturers to submit a notification to the competent Member State authorities for each Novel Tobacco Product six months before placing the product on the market in that Member State. Following the transposition of the TPD into national law, PMI has therefore submitted a Scientific Dossier to the regulatory authorities of a number of EU Member States about Platform 1, available for download here in redacted form. The required information includes a description of the product and its intended use, as well as available data regarding toxicity, addictiveness, attractiveness and consumer preferences. The Scientific Dossier and its appendices summarize the above based on PMI’s scientific assessment program and include the results of the assessment program for Platform 1 as of May 2016.
