The NNA says: “We are delighted to invite you to join us for an online webinar discussion with Clive Bates, Director of Counterfactual Consulting and former Director of Action on Smoking and Health, from 6pm – 7pm (BST) on Thursday 4th June. He will be speaking on the subject ‘TPD Review: Opportunity or catastrophe?’.
“The current EU Tobacco Products Directive (TPD), in force since 2014, has had a significant impact on how safer nicotine products are regulated, manufactured, marketed and consumed across the UK and EU member states. With a review of this Directive underway, what can we expect for the future and what can consumers do about it?
“Is this an opportunity for consumers to engage with policymakers to influence regulation or will we be facing a catastrophe of poor rule-making? Will it affect the UK now we have left the EU or will we still be bound by TPD rules? What lessons can the UK government learn from the benefits and flaws of the previous TPD and what can consumers in the UK and Europe do to guide politicians in a sensible direction?
“Clive will draw on his extensive knowledge of this policy area to tackle these subjects and more, with time allotted afterwards for attendees to ask questions to Clive directly.”
Webinar with Clive Bates: Thursday 4th June, 18:00-19:00 GMT
