The information sheet on WHO TobLabNet methods for measuring priority contents and emissions in tobacco and related products provides guidance on reducing tobacco product appeal and use, through product regulation. To better understand tobacco product regulation and the role it plays in the wider context of tobacco control, the information sheet specifically provides information on the following:
• The importance of developing methods that are independent of the tobacco industry for tobacco product regulation.
• How measuring tobacco product contents and emissions can advance tobacco product regulation.
• Information on TobLabNet and its activities.
• WHO TobLabNet methods and how they are developed.
• The difference between the ISO and the intense regime.
• The priority contents and emissions of tobacco products and the methods available for measuring them.
• Next steps for TobLabNet.

This will help interested parties, particularly regulators, to address key technical questions about testing tobacco products and the importance of product regulation, in general.
