FAO new regulation guidelines to help countries finish tobacco industry 'reign'

12.03.2018 09:17 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) As of last week, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) issued new guidelines on the role that tobacco product regulations can play in saving lives by reducing the population demand for tobacco and tobacco products- estimated to kill over seven million people annually, UN Radio says referring to the FAO report. It is to be admitted, the new guidelines are titled "Tobacco product regulation: Building laboratory testing capacity; they provide practical and stepwise approaches to implementing tobacco testing relevant to a wide range of countries, especially those with inadequate resources to establish testing facilities. As to the report, the new guidelines together with an accompanying publication will help governments «do much more» to implement regulations and address the exploitation of tobacco product regulations. «The tobacco industry has enjoyed years of little or no regulation, mainly due to the complexity of tobacco product regulation and lack of appropriate guidance in this area,» said Douglas Bettcher, Director of the WHO Department for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases. «Tobacco product regulation is an under-utilized tool which has a critical role to play in reducing tobacco use [and] these new tools provide a useful resource to countries to either introduce or improve existing tobacco product regulation provisions and end the tobacco industry reign,» he admits. As to him, the guidelines will also assist within the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (a global treaty combating the tobacco epidemic) through strengthening tobacco product regulation capacity within WHO member countries.
