The Netherlands ratified the WHO Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC) on January 27, 2005. In 2008, the ITC Netherlands (NL) Survey was launched in 2008 by researchers from Maastricht University (CAPHRI), STIVORO (the Dutch Expert Centre on Tobacco Control), ASCoR (University of Amsterdam) and Leiden University Medical Centre working in collaboration with the ITC Project. Eleven survey waves have been conducted among a cohort of youth aged 15 to 17 and adult smokers aged 18 and older.
