PMI Germany’s Maximilian Jell announced as speaker

TJI Campus is pleased to announce that Head of Regulatory Affairs & Reduced Risk Products at PMI Germany, Maximilian Jell, will be presenting at the TJI Campus Industry 4.0 Workshop in November.

As Head of Regulatory Affairs and Reduced Risk Products at Philip Morris GmbH, Maximilian Jell manages the company’s contacts with regulatory and governmental agencies regarding regulatory issues such as the marketing, and entry into the market, of both conventional and novel risk-reduced tobacco products in Germany.

Before taking on his current role, Jell worked as Head of EU Affairs at Philip Morris International, where he was in charge of contacts with the European Parliament and the European Commission about product regulation issues.

His presentation entitled: “The digital challenge: will risk-reduced tobacco products lead to a paradigm shift for tobacco regulation or just more of the same?” will reveal how, heat-not-burn products, which would not be possible without the digital revolution, offer tremendous regulatory opportunities and, at the same time, pose a great challenge for manufacturers.
