Key Terms


Term Defined

“Ingredients” means all substances or constituents, except for tobacco leaf and other natural or unprocessed tobacco plant parts which are used in the manufacture or preparation of tobacco products and are still present in the finished product, even if in altered form, including paper, filters, inks and adhesives.


The definition of “ingredients” is significant because Regulation No. 790/2011 requires the disclosure of ingredients by manufacturers and importers.
