Testing Australian tobacco products

This project will commission independent testing of selected Australian tobacco products to provide Australian-specific evidence to inform policy directions.  The project will also guide corrective public education about several product attributes such as filter-venting and roll-your-own tobacco that contribute to misleading or distracting smokers from the harms of tobacco use.
