Term Defined

“Constituents” means nicotine, tar and any other component of a tobacco product or of tobacco smoke which the Minister may by an executive instrument declare to be a constituent for the purposes of this Part [of the law].


The definition of “constituents” is significant because the law grants authority to the Minister of Health and the Food and Drugs Authority to establish the manner or method to determine the quantities of hazardous constituents in tobacco products.
