    In November 2003, the WHO Director-General formalized the Scientific Advisory Committee on Tobacco Product Regulation (SACTob) by changing its status to that of a study group. Following the status change, the SACTob became the "WHO Study Group on Tobacco Product Regulation" (TobReg). It is composed of national and international scientific experts on product regulation, tobacco dependence treatment, and laboratory analysis of tobacco ingredients and emissions. Its work is based on cutting edge research on tobacco product issues. It conducts research in order to fill regulatory gaps in tobacco control. As a formalized entity of WHO, TobReg reports to the Executive Board through the Director-General in order to draw the Member States' attention to WHO's efforts in tobacco product regulation. This recommendation was approved and adopted by TobReg during its first meeting on 26 to 28 October 2004 in Montebello, Canada.
