Voting Member - Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC) · April 23, 2023 Consulting US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) , Washington, DC flag United States of America The Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC) reviews and evaluates safety, dependence, and health issues relating to tobacco products and provides appropriate advice, information and recommendations to the Commissioner of Food and Drugs.
Scientific Advisor - Eleventh Meeting of the World Health Organization (WHO) Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation (TobReg) · December 13, 2022 Consulting World Health Organization (WHO) , Tbilisi, Georgia The eleventh meeting of the WHO Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation (TobReg) provided a forum for scientists to deliberate on and update knowledge on pertinent issues related to the regulation of nicotine and tobacco products. The meeting focused specifically on emerging issues, such as the use of synthetic nicotine in nicotine and tobacco products and nicotine pouches and other topics based on requests to the Conference of Parties (COP) to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) at various sessions. The following background papers informed the meeting: Additives that facilitate inhalation, including cooling agents, nicotine salts and flavourings. Synthetic nicotine: science, global legal landscape and regulatory considerations. Nicotine pouches: characteristics, use, harmfulness and regulation. Biomarkers of exposure, effect and susceptibility for assessing electronic nicotine delivery devices and heated tobacco products, and their possible prioritization. Internet, influencer and social media marketing of tobacco and nontherapeutic nicotine products and associated regulatory considerations. The WHO Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation: two decades of recommendations – translating evidence into policy action. It was a closed working group meeting for WHO TobReg members, WHO staff, the Secretariat of the WHO FCTC and invited experts. The resulting TobReg recommendations were compiled into the 9th technical report series (TRS) of the study group, which were presented to the WHO Executive Board at its 153rd session. The recommendations of the report, will guide Member States in achieving the most effective and evidence-based means to bridge regulatory gaps in tobacco control, develop coordinated regulatory framework for tobacco products, guide international policy and provide access to scientific information. The eleventh meeting of TobReg took place in Tbilisi, Georgia from 13 - 15 December 2022 and was generously hosted by the Georgian National Centre for Disease Control and Public Health and organized by the WHO.
Scientific Advisor - Technical Workshop on Novel and Emerging Nicotine and Tobacco Products Experiences · June 23, 2022 Consulting World Health Organization (WHO) & European Union (EU) , Copenhagen Novel nicotine and tobacco products such as e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products are gaining popularity worldwide, especially among adolescents and young adults. The diversity of the products, their design features and characteristics, makes it hard for countries to regulate them and monitor their use in the population. The WHO Regional Office for Europe, in collaboration with WHO Headquarters and the European Commission, is organizing a technical workshop to provide a platform for information exchange and direct engagement with experts. It also aims to contribute to building capacity of EU Member States to effectively regulate these products, and those protecting young people from tobacco and nicotine addiction. The event will convene tobacco control focal points from the Member States of the European Union, as well as invited experts from the European Commission, WHO and WHO FCTC Secretariat. The workshop’s discussions will include the following topics: Latest data: science and marketing of novel nicotine and tobacco products Challenges, achievements and regulatory needs of the European Union in relation to these products What further support is needed from WHO and the European Commission in addressing the challenges related to novel nicotine and tobacco products?
