Lower Ignition Propensity cigarettes (LIP)

Some regulators consider that Lower Ignition Propensity (LIP) cigarettes are less likely than regular cigarettes to continue burning when left unattended.  These regulators required the development of standards in an attempt to reduce the number of accidental fires.


Hence, all cigarettes in a number of countries including Canada, the United States of America and the European Union, are expected to comply with certain standards on Lower Ignition Propensity.


Lower Ignition Propensity cigarettes will not always self-extinguish under conditions of use.   You should always exercise great care with lit cigarettes. No cigarette should be left unattended while burning.  All cigarettes should be disposed of with care after use.
