Regulatory Framework

For these Main Policies, have legislation and/or regulations been enacted or issued covering heated tobacco products?


The sale of HTPs is banned subject to the legislative/regulatory framework 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.

For these Main Policies, has a government body issued any directive and/or non-judicial decision covering heated tobacco products?


To the best of our knowledge, no directives have been issued by a government body for these Main Policies.
