Regulatory Framework

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


HTPs are regulated subject to the legislative/regulatory framework under Article 110 of the Law on People's Health and Healthcare System (Act No. 360-VI), which regulates all tobacco products (including tobacco inserts and devices), including consumption in public places, advertising, promotion, and sponsorship, packaging and labeling, and sales restrictions. The Law on Advertising (No. 508-II) regulates advertising generally, with specific provisions addressing tobacco inserts and devices.
