Globalization of world economy led to globalization of tobacco industry and national standards to had to be unified with the world standards. The unification of standards was necessary for and faster realization of tobacco buying and selling and also for faster production of harmans for manufacture of certain cigarette brands.
The existing standard for oriental aromatic type of tobacco in R. Macedonia (MKS E.P1.021) is the same as the standard taken from the Yugoslav Bureau for Standardisation, valid for all republics of former Yugoslavia. This standard, however, showed inadequate in the present situation, especially in relation to the labels denoting tobacco quality, i.e. industrial grade. Labeling of quality of manufactured tobacco is generally made according to U.S. Standard Tobacco Grades and according to the internal labels of the buyers. Presently, tobacco sale is not accomplished according to the labels of existing standards. Therefore, it is necessary to make revision of the existing Macedonian standards for classification of oriental tobaccos and their adaptation according the international standards.
