“Ingredient” means tobacco, an additive, as well as any substance or element present in a finished tobacco product or related products.
The definition of “ingredient” provided in the law aligns with the definition provided in the FCTC Arts. 9 & 10 Partial Guidelines.
“Additive” means a substance, other than tobacco, that is added to a tobacco product, a unit packet or to any outside packaging; as regards nicotine containing liquids, additive means a substance, other than nicotine, that is added to a nicotine-containing liquid, a unit packet or to any outside packaging.
The definition of “additive” is significant because certain additives are prohibited by law.
“Characterising flavour or aroma” means a smell or taste other than one of tobacco, resulting from an additive or a combination of additives, which is clearly noticeable in a tobacco product, nicotine-containing liquid or nicotine-free liquid intended for vaporisation before or during its consumption.
The definition of “characterising flavour or aroma” is significant because the law prohibits characterizing flavors in cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco.
“Emissions” means substances that are released when a tobacco or related product is consumed as intended.
The definition of “emissions” is significant because the law imposes maximum emissions levels.
