Remarks:

  1. The published figures represent mean values of determinations undertaken over the whole sampling period.
  2. Brands with the same figure for tar and nicotine yields are listed in alphabetical order.
  3. International Standards methods employed for the determination are ISO 3308:2012, ISO 4387:2000, ISO10362-1:1999, ISO 8243:2013, and ISO 10315:2013.
  4. The estimates of uncertainty for the methods summarized below are based on data published by the International Organization for Standardization and results reported by recent Asia Collaborative Study.
Mean tar yield, mg Uncertainty, mg
1 to 4 ± 1.0
5 to 9 ± 1.5
10 to 14 ± 2.2
15 to 17 ± 2.6
Mean nicotine yield, mg Uncertainty, mg
0.1 to 0.4 ± 0.10
0.5 to 1.0 ± 0.18
1.1 to 1.5 ± 0.25
