Justice Ministry Says IQOS Product Will be Treated as Ordinary Tobacco
Previously, the company asked the US Food and Drug Administration to recognize iQOS as “modified-risk product.”
Last week, Israel’s Justice Ministry notified the company that it accepted the position of three voluntary organizations in Israel that the product is actually a “tobacco product,” and all the restrictions that apply to tobacco products should apply to iQOS.
In parallel, Philip Morris reversed its previous position towards the FDA and now wants iQOS to first be recognized as a “tobacco product.”
