France ratified the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) on October 19, 2004. In 2006, researchers from the Inpes (now called Santé publique France) and the French National Cancer Institute (INCa) formed a collaboration with the ITC Project to create the ITC France (FR) Survey. There were three waves of the first adult smoker and non-smoker cohort aged 18 and older of the ITC France (FR) Survey. In 2019, researchers from Santé publique France collaborated with the ITC Project to create a second cohort of ITC France (FRA) Survey.
