The Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology (Rosstandart) signed an order approving the national standard for IQOS . “So far, there have been no standards for this type of products. The Russian Federation is the first country where the national standard for heated tobacco will come into force,” Rosstandart said in a statement.
The standard will come into effect on July 1, 2017. It refers to heated tobacco that is consumed by means of inhaling a tobacco vapor with a heating device (in the absence of burning).
