Regulatory Framework

For these Main Policies, has the government taken specific action to regulate heated tobacco products?


The sale of HTPs is banned under ANVISA Resolution No. 46, which bans the import, sales, and advertising of HTPs as “electronic smoking devices.”

The resolution allows for applications for permission to sell products intended for the treatment of tobacco addiction (as medicinal products). However, no such applications have been approved.
