Heated tobacco products (HTP) by means of electronically controlled heaters
“Heated tobacco products (HTP) by means of electronically controlled heaters” means products containing industrially processed tobacco, not intended for smoking, sniffing, sucking or chewing, which are used to generate aerosols by heating tobacco with an electric heater with electronic control of temperature that does not cause the process of lighting (combustion) of the product and the release of tobacco smoke.
For the purpose of this review, we will be using the term “HTP” when referring to a “heated tobacco product.”
