Main policies

Use in indoor public places, workplaces, and public transport

Uncertain
Analysis

E-cigarettes are listed in the law under “types of smoking products not containing tobacco.” This falls under the heading “types of tobacco products.” Therefore, it is uncertain whether e-cigarettes should be considered “tobacco products” under the law. Thus, the regulatory status code “Uncertain” is given. If they were to be considered tobacco products, their use would be prohibited in all indoor public places, workplaces, and public transport.

Advertising and promotion (excluding point of sale product display)
