In an effort to reduce the number of accidental fires and deaths caused by carelessly thrown cigarettes that can ignite furniture or bedding, CEN and ISO have developed standards for self-extinguishing cigarettes, known as LIP standards.
It is a new technology with which cigarettes will be extinguished much faster after being thrown on the ground.
According to the EU Product Safety Directive and the Decision of the European Commission (2011/496 / EC), from November 2011, only cigarettes that will comply with the new (LIP) standards can be sold on the EU market (EN 16156: 2010 and EN ISO 12863: 2010).
This innovation is expected to be implemented in Macedonia as well
This workshop focused on the new LIP (low ignition propensity) standards for cigarettes, legislation in Macedonia and Europe, planned changes to European directives on product safety (Directive 2001/95 / EC) and marketing of tobacco products (Directive 2001 / 37 / EC)
