Tar and Nicotine Content Standards

| Cigarette Facts | January 8, 2015

As per the standard HS 22-95 of March, 17, 1995, the maximum allowed level of tars content in domestic cigarettes is higher yet than it is allowed by international standards. While in the rest of the world it is 15 mg/cigarette for tars and 1,3 mg/cigarette for nicotine, in domestic cigarettes, while nicotine maximum is the same, for tars it is 20 mg/cig. in filter cigarettes and 24 mg/cig. in cigarettes without filter.

May be, such a “leadership” is due to the fact that Russian smokers traditionally prefer strong cigarettes with a high tar content, “full flavour”. Among domestic brands, the most popular are cigarettes of 3 – 5 classes, rather low quality, such as “Prima”, “Pegas”, “Astra”, “Nasha Marka”. Nevertheless, domestic cigarettes of 1 – 2 classes, (“Kosmos”, “Petr I”, “Java Zolotaya”, “Soyuz Apollon” and others), many of which are produced in Russia at joint ventures with foreign funds, can compete in quality with imported cigarettes and have better sales because of their available prices. According to experts forecast, next 10 years the deal of imported cigarettes on Russian market would decrease from 1/3 to 1/5.

Concerning “light” (about 7-11 mg/cig. tars) and, more so, “superlight” (less than 7 mg/cig. tars) cigarettes that last years became popular in Europe and America, they haven’t won a wide market in Russia yet, but, as experts say, must be more popular in the nearest future.
